Potato Soup with Ham Recipe:
2 tbs butter
1 1/2 to 2 cups onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
2 to 3 cups ham, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup water
4 to 5 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
3 tbs all-purpose flour
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup half-and-half or milk, more if needed to thin
Dash salt, to taste
Dash freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Optional: 2 tbs fresh parsley, chopped
Garnish: green onions or chives, sliced
Optional: cheddar cheese or cheddar-jack blend, shredded
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.
Add onion, celery, carrots, and ham.
Cook, stirring frequently until onions are tender, about 5 min.
Add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 to 2 min longer.
Add vegetable broth, water, and potatoes.
Cover and cook for about 25 min, until potatoes are tender.
Whisk flour into the heavy cream until smooth.
Stir into the hot mixture.
Stir in the half-and-half or milk. Taste and add salt and pepper, as desired. Continue cooking until hot.
Using a potato masher or fork, mash the potatoes slightly to thicken. Add more milk if the soup is too thick.
Serve the potato soup garnished with parsley, sliced green onions or chives, or a little bit of shredded cheese. Serves 6
