Here is an easy yet hearty recipe for white bean soup that melds the flavors of navy beans, pork, onions, garlic, and seasonings.
Gather the ingredients.
Drain and rinsed the white beans that have been soaking overnight.
Place the beans, water, bay leaves, salt pork, and ham hocks in a soup pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove the salt pork and discard.
Remove the ham hocks and shred the meat from the bones.
Put the shredded meat back into the soup pot.
In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Sautee the onions and garlic until soft and translucent.
Add onions to the soup pot, along with the cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper to the pot. Simmer for 15 minutes.
