Updated August 17, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 bag (16 oz) dried navy beans, sorted, rinsed
  • 8 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 medium stalk celery, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (14 oz) vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps

  • 1
    In 8-quart Dutch oven, heat beans and water to boiling. Boil uncovered 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 1 hour.
  • 2
    Stir in remaining ingredients except parsley. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer about 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender.
  • 3
    Stir in parsley. Cook 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Navy beans fed many a sailor in the early 1800s, thus their name. Although larger in size, cannellini or great northern beans can be substituted--don't worry, the Navy won't mind.
  • Navy Bean Soup with Ham: Add 1 cup diced fully cooked turkey ham with the remaining ingredients in step 2.
