This very hearty soup is easy and can be adjusted depending on what meat bones you may have on hand. This is a great way to use up any left over roast from a previous meal. We used a bone from a leg of lamb and a beef rib roast originally cooked on the charcoal grill for a family holiday celebration, and the flavor was extraordinarily rich. Serve with crusty bread.

Just tried this recipe using 1/2 of a ham hock I bought at the grocery. The wine flavor is VERY strong; I might change it to 1c of stock (beef or vegetable) and only 1/2 cup of wine. It would also probably be good if you added chopped carrots and celery.

I just finished making this - wonderful! The spice mixture is perfect to perk up the beans. I didn't have any meat on the bone to use, so I just used two chicken breasts, using half the spices as a rub for the meat before browning the chicken in a little olive oil on the stovetop. Delicious!
