This is a good time of the year to enjoy a hearty, satisfying soup—one that you can throw together in a hurry and simmer in the slow cooker for a few hours while you’re enjoying other pursuits—and so, with that in mind, I prepared “Slow Cooker White Bean and Ham Soup,” which is a recipe that I found on With all kinds of good things, such as ham hocks, carrots, onions, celery, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes, white beans (Great Northern or Navy), chicken stock, and a number of seasonings, this soup is really a one-dish meal.
