"White Bean 'n' Ham Soup, for example is a winner on all three levels," she explains. "It's economical quick and yummy!" Bissy notes that while canned beans make this hearty main dish a fast fix, you can say money by soaking and cooking dry beans instead.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (15-1/2 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

Directions

  1. Mash one can of beans; set aside. In a large saucepan, saute the carrots and onion in butter. Stir in the water, ham, seasonings and whole and mashed beans; cook over medium heat until heated through. Discard bay leaf.
