White Bean Soup with Pork Hocks

Ingredients

 1 Pork Hock
 375 Dried White Beans
 4 Celery Sticks, roughly chopped
 2 Carrots, roughly chopped
 3 Garlic Cloves
 2 Bay Leaves
 ½ tsp Red Chilli Flakes
 2 tbsp Grated Parmesan
 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 Salt & Pepper to taste

Method

1

Place the pork hock upright on a chopping board. Cut off the rind by sawing downward with a sharp knife. Cut the meat from the bone into large chunks.

2

In a large pot, combine beans, hock meat and bone, garlic, chilli flakes, bay leaves, carrots, celery and 10 cups of water. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil. Then, lower heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, for approximately 1 3/4 hours or until beans are very tender.

3

Remove the hock meat and bone from the soup. If there is remaining meat on the bone, remove and set it aside. Shred all the meat into bite-sized pieces and return to the soup.

4

Divide soup among bowls, top with parmesan cheese then season with salt & pepper.
