15 Minute White Bean and Ham Soup with Kale

   15 Minute White Bean and Ham Soup with Kale

Last week I shared with you my recipe for 15 Minute Sweet and Sour Pork using Maple Leaf® Country Kitchen® Smoked Ham

I love finding new quick and easy dinner ideas and this 15 Minute White Bean and Ham Soup with Kale caught my eye on AppEhtite.ca.  I did tweak it a bit to suit my family’s tastes a bit more and it came out amazing.  I particularly like the chopped up Kale in it, what a great idea! 

I was surprised by how much flavour the soup has despite the quick cook time.  Using the  Schneiders® Old Fashioned® 25% Less Sodium Smoked Ham really makes things so much easier.
