YumYum Divas YumYum Recipes: Hearty Hungarian Bean Soup, contributed by katg

Recipe Title: Hearty Hungarian Bean Soup

Contributed by: katg

Note from the Diva
This is my favorite Bean Soup…actually I sometimes make it the day before and put it in the fridge overnight so that it could sit and really get tasty. I will save my Bones from Hams from Christmas/Thanksgiving or Easter and will freeze them until I’m ready to make soup. If I don’t have a Ham Bone I’ll use smoked Pork Hocks…they are very flavorful. I love it with some nice hot cornbread muffins. So good!

This is so good…I grew up on this (minus the Better than Bullion soup base!). It’s real stick-to-your-ribs, down to earth good food!

List of Ingredients
2 cups of Dry Navy Beans
1 big Ham bone
About 12 cups of water to cover the ham bone
4 tablespoons of “Better than bullion” Ham soup base
2 large onions diced
3 stalks of celery diced
½ stick of butter
4 tablespoons flour
1 cup sour cream
½ cup vinegar
Salt/pepper
Fresh parsley chopped fine (about a handful)

Preparation
Either soak your beans overnight with water to cover or do the quick method – take your 2 cups of beans and cover with about 8 cups of water. Bring to a boil and boil for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let the beans sit for an hour.

In another pot, add your ham bone, onions, celery and water. Bring to a boil and then simmer low for about and hour and a half. Add the Ham soup base and beans (discard the water). Simmer low for about another hour. Remove the ham bone and cut any remaining meat into small pieces and return it to the soup.

In the meantime, melt your butter in a saucepan, add the flour and keep stirring over medium heat until smooth and cook for about 5 minutes (keep stirring). Add in a few ladles of the soup broth and keep stirring making sure there’s no lumps. Keep adding in the broth until you have a thinner consistency.

Add the sour cream and stir until blended and smooth.

Pour this mixture back into the soup and stir. Add in the vinegar for a little tang and add parsley, salt and pepper as per you taste. Simmer for about another 15 minutes…
