  • 1 (20 ounce) package 15 bean mixture, soaked overnight
  • 1 ham bone
  • 2 1/2 cups cubed ham
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 5 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, with liquid
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can low-sodium vegetable juice
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  1. Place the soaked beans into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover by about 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low for 30 minutes. Drain. Add the ham bone, ham, onion, celery, carrots, tomatoes, vegetable juice, and vegetable broth.
