POTATO, HAM & BROCCOLI SOUP

Potato, ham and broccoli soup is always a hit at my house.

Potato, Ham and Broccoli Soup Broccoli and ham potato soup is a little different from the one I usually make but we enjoyed it just as much.  You could replace the ham with just about any meat in this recipe.  I think chicken would be great or smoked sausage, too.

6 or 7 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 cup cooked ham, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup broccoli pieces (I used frozen but could use fresh)
2 medium carrots or 1 cup, chopped
1/3 cup zucchini, unpeeled and shredded (Optional)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt (Optional)
1 (14 ounce) can 99% fat free chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
5 cups water
2 cups milk (I used 2%)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Shredded cheese of your choice for garnish
 
Using a large stock pot combine potatoes, celery, ham, onion, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, garlic, salt, pepper, chicken broth, thyme, and butter.  Cover with 5 cups water and bring to a boil.  Cut heat to simmer and cook till potatoes are done.  Heat 2 cups milk to warm either on stove or in microwave, add flour and beat with whisk until smooth.  Pour into soup.  Bring soup back to boil for about 5 minutes, then simmer again for about 10 minutes. Garnish with shredded cheese of your choice.   Makes a little over 2 quarts and is such a comfort food. You could also make this in the crock pot.   Enjoy!
 
Note:  I serve this with my Zucchini Hoecakes or Cornbread Muffins or my Southern Cornmeal Hoecakes.
