A simple, adaptable and very forgiving recipe, inspired by October 2018 Bon Appetit, this soup satisfies! This hearty, delicious, smoky soup recipe can be adapted by using any type of bean you want (I used Great Northern beans), or ham hocks instead of shanks, or include any vegetables you might like. I stuck to the traditional carrots, celery, onions). You can make this in a single pot, but the ham hocks or shanks take up quite a bit of space, so it may not be feasible to use a slow-cooker or Instant Pot.
