Ham & Black Bean Soup Recipe
A great way to use up leftover ham. Delicious.
- In a large soup pot, soften the garlic and the onions in a little oil for about 4 minutes. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the ham. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 2 hours.
- Whiz about 2/3 of the soup in a blender to make it smooth, then stir it back in, add the ham, and heat through.
Use 1 cup chopped ham or bacon (or about 1/3 lb) Optional: garnish the bowls with a dab of yoghurt or sour cream, and a sprinkling of grated cheddar and chopped green onion and chopped fresh coriander.
