My mom has been making a variation of this soup for as long as I can remember, especially since it's always been a favorite of my dad's. I've got to make a batch this winter. Your photo makes me want to wrap myself in a toasty blanket and enjoy a big bowl.


Your photos is body-and-soul-warming too and your bread from the previous post is a perfect accompaniment!

Soup season is also starting in Munich, snow is supposed to arrive on Monday...


What I wouldn't give for some wooly sock weather! It's still balmy and hot during the day here. When it does cool off, I'll have to try this soup -- I love the pink and green of the ham and beans.


Oh, this is the kind of simple, hearty, warming soup I love!

Joanna, your bread looks positively delicious , as does the soup. I've made similar in the last few weeks, but I think it has to be a little bit colder before we really get into the thick and hearty soups. It's amazing how much better they taste with snow on the ground

MMMM! I've kicked off soup season on my blog too even though it's not remotely cool in Florida. This soup reminds me of split pea and ham which I love. I'm going to go bring out your hazelnut bread recipe now it looks wonderful!


I wish we had soup weather down here also...I like your version rather than the traditioal split pea soup, especially with that gorgeous piece of bread!


Mmmmm, 101 uses for a broad bean! Are broad beans and some sort of pork product the perfect marriage of tastes or WHAT? This soup looks glorious and you KNOW how much I love that bread!

I have never made this sort of soup but sure does look and sound delicious!!! I think it will be the perfect fall meal.
