    At first glance I thought 'Hurrah, a vegetarian recipe' but no, even though there's navy beans for protein, there's ham included. There is no need to include some part of a dead animal in almost every recipe. It will taste just as good without and it looks really good otherwise and I will try it tomorrow.

    Substituting vegetable stock for chicken too, of course. Also, there are tasty ham-style products available in the vegetarian section of the supermarket that you could hardly tell the difference.
