    My mom always made it when I was growing up in the crock pot. She put water onions, diced ham and the beans in the crockpot all day. It was good. Seems like it would be easy to figure the points.

    I did a search yesterday and found tons of recipes online. That is what I made for dinner last night. I used the onions, celery, carrots, sauted them in my healthy oil, poured in some ff chicken stock and simmered them until tender and then used canned beans that had been rinsed. Sure was good. Maybe I will have that for lunch.
    You can't get there from here.

    Ham and Bean Soup in the Crockpot

    2 lbs. Great Northern beans
    2 pkgs. Ham shanks (find these in the meat dept.—they look kind of gross, but they make this soup fabulous!!)
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic or 2 tsp. garlic powder
    Salt & pepper

    Soak beans overnight in large bowl. Drain and rinse.

    Wrap the ham shanks in cheesecloth and tie with string. Place in Crockpot, add beans, onion and spices. Fill Crockpot with water. Cook on low for 8 hours. Remove ham shanks to a large bowl, remove cheesecloth and remove all bones and fat from meat. Shred meat with 2 forks.
    Put 4 cups beans and broth into blender and puree’. Add meat and puree’ to Crockpot and mix well.
    Leftovers of this will be very thick so you’ll have to add additional water. This will lower the point value depending on how much water you add.

    ½ C. beans only=100 calories, 6 g. fiber, 0.5 g. fat
    Ham = 1 pt. per oz.
    I figure this is 2-3 points per cup when first made. If you mix 2 C. leftover soup with 1 C. water, it is easily only 2 pts. per cup.

    You can take any one of these recipes and instead of adding the meat, add about 4 slices of turkey bacon or center cut bacon (2 points) for the flavoring, and it comes out just as well. I usually just put in the beans, water, salt, pepper, a pinch of garlic powder and a few slices of bacon and DH and I have a COW over this stuff. SO good.

    Happy Bean Souping!
