Simple Southern Ham and Bean Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter, plus more for topping
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 1/2 cups leftover diced ham
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 2 (15 oz) cans white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth, (or homemade)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 cups fresh collard greens, cut into thin ribbons (can substitute one can of cooked collard greens)

Preparation

In a heavy bottomed soup pot over medium heat, cook onion, garlic, ham and thyme in oil and butter, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.

 

Add beans, broth, bay leaf, collards, salt and pepper (to taste) and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes, so the flavors can develop. Remove bay leaves before serving. Serve in soup bowls and garnish with a tablespoon of butter on top.

I love ham, and

I love ham, and I also love beans(all kinds). This is an all time favorite. But, I have never put any greens in the soup. I will try putting collards(love them, too. Doesn't all southerners love them)?
