"Whenever my veggie bin needs to get cleaned out, I love to throw together a big pot of hearty vegetable soup to make use of any vegetables that I need to use up quickly. I put together this version today specifically to use up the rest of my holiday ham. It turned out great and is very flexible. Feel free to use different veggies based on what you have in your own fridge."

Step 1

Add enough olive oil to thinly coat the bottom of a large stockpot; you only need enough to sautee the veggies.

Step 2

Heat pan over medium-high heat; add diced onions, bell pepper, and zucchini, sauteeing until onions are softened, seasoning heavily to taste with Mrs. Dash Table Blend herb seasoning.

Step 3

Add tomatoes, then fill the tomato can with about 1/4-1/3 cup water and add to the pot.

Step 4

Add broth, ham, beans,sliced garlic and a bit of garlic salt to taste (not too much as the ham will provide some salt as well); feel free to add more Mrs Dash to taste if you like.

Step 5

Bring the pot to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low, partially cover, and let cook about 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally and testing for seasoning, adjusting as needed to your liking.
