Mixed Bean Soup

A full flavored soup made with mixed beans, ham, the trinity and dried herbs.

Mixed Bean Soup

I had a couple of 1-pound packages of mixed bean soup mix in my pantry that I'd gotten from a food box, and to be honest, I had never been much fond of these mixes. Just too many different beans going on for me and I'm never quite sure what to do with them, or even how to season them.

I finally decided to take the plunge and use some of the leftover ham from dinner the other night and just take a chance and create my own mixed bean soup.

I have to say that this combination of seasonings worked out perfect. This was a delicious soup that I will definitely be making again and with a serving of the Parmesan Garlic Toast on the side ... just over the top! Hope you give it a try. If you have a little bit of leftover pasta, toss that in or warm it up and just spoon the soup over it.

Here's another recipe I came up with using the other bean mix package - Sausage, Beans and Rice - if you're looking for something other than a soup!
