This 15 Bean Soup Recipe is easy to make in the slow cooker and can be made healthier by substituting Smoked Turkey Wings and/or Legs instead of Smoked Ham Hocks. Instructions for making this soup in the slow cooker, on the stovetop, or in the oven are included. Additionally, adjustments for soaking or not soaking your dried beans are discussed.
I cook frequently and have made ALOT of soup throughout the 35 years of our marriage. During the fall and winter, we will eat soup at least twice a week. I tell you this to give you some reference to a comment my husband made after enjoying this 15-Bean Soup Recipe. After his second bowl of this soup, he said, “I think that this is the best soup you have ever made.” I mean, that is a really sweeping statement! The best soup I have EVER made???
