Since the early twentieth century, navy bean soup with smoked ham has been on the menus of the Senate's restaurants every day. Because of its importance in American culture, the soup has earned the moniker "Senate Bean Soup."
White pea bean is another name for the Navy Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). The United States Navy began giving these beans as a normal ration for sailors in the 19th century due to their excellent nutritional value, low cost, and long storage life.
Navy beans are nutritious, inexpensive, and have a long shelf life. They're packed in protein, iron, and calcium yet low in fat, making them a healthy and cost-effective addition to salads, soups, and side dishes. This mild bean is traditionally used in a thick navy bean and ham soup with vegetables.
Navy beans are legumes, plants grown for their edible seeds and pods, which have a high nutrient density and require little care to grow and store. They're high in protein, minerals, and fiber, yet low in fat.
Beans, which are said to have originated in Peru, expanded throughout South and Central America through commerce before being introduced to Europe by Spanish explorers in the 15th century. They have become diet mainstays in many cultures because they are a high-quality, low-cost source of protein and nutrients.
