A hearty soup that is filled with beans, carrots, ham, onions, garlic, and spices. Then slow cooked all day until tender. Warm up with a bowl of this hearty soup.
In the crock pot place the beans and 4 cups of chicken broth to soak for 6-8 hours prior to cooking. I like to do this the night before.
Once the beans have soaked for 6-8 hours add in the diced onion, cubed ham, finely chopped carrot, minced garlic, parsley, oregano, basil, pepper, garlic powder, and enough chicken broth to cover all the ingredients.
Stir all the ingredients together, place the lid on the crock pot. Set to low for 10 hours or high for 6 hours.
Hour before cook time is up use a potato masher to mash the ingredients together. With some of the bean mashed this will thicken the soup.
Serve and enjoy!
