Ingredients
  

  • 1 meaty ham bone
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 2 c carrots, sliced
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (15 ounce cans)
  • 8 c chicken broth or water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions
