  • 1 ham steak, cut in cubes (or any ham leftovers you may have on hand)
  • 1 tbl canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 tbl chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 14.5 oz cans of large butter beans, drained
  • 1/4 cup stewed tomatoes with juice, squeezed through a sieve
  • 3 14.5 oz cans of chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf


  • Cut ham steak in bite size cubes and fry in frying pan for about 10 minutes, until it is nicely browned. Meat gives off a better flavor to soups when it has been is browned.
  • Remove ham from the pan and set aside. Add oil to frying pan and saute onions, carrots and parsley for about 5 minutes.
  • To a 3 qt pot, add the ham, butter beans, stewed tomatoes, chicken broth and bay leaf. Bring soup to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes. Test for seasonings. Add salt if desired. Serve.


Often I will sprinkle chopped chives or finely chopped green onions over the soup. It adds a little bit of a bite to it.
