U.S. Senate Bean Soup (with Serrano ham)

 

I spotted this recipe in Pinterest, pinned it and unlike most of the times, I decided to try it right away instead of pin it for another time and forget about it, as it usually happens (I’m not the only one, am I?).

As its name indicates, this is a soup served daily at the U.S. Senate restaurant from the beginning of the XXth Century. There are two official recipes, with or without potatoes, according to the U.S. Senate web page. However, the one that caught my eye linked me back to a Foodista recipe that has also carrots on it and it was the one I cooked and slightly altered to the ingredients I had at hand and to a quicker version.

I loved the result and therefore wish to share it, besides it is the first American recipe I post and it always makes me happy to broaden my culinary borders. I hope you enjoy it!
