1 cup carrots, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
5 cups chicken stock
2 (16 oz.) bag frozen butter beans

1 cup milk, warm
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium high heat until hot. Add onions, carrots, celery salt and pepper and saute until tender. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. While stock is boiling add frozen butter beans and bring down to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes, covered.

Once pureed add warmed milk and blend well. Add smoked ham and serve.
