Creamed Cabbage Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by WiGal

A nice winter soup and good with corn bread. This is another way to use small pieces of leftover ham. I do think some meltable cheese would be good in this as some reviewers have suggested. Also, thank you Chef#226863 for suggesting that I include a measurable amount of cabbage. I have also added the ham right away into vegetable /broth too if in hurry. Grated carrots also works well in this, and sometimes grate it right over the pan.

I made this for the Make it Healthier game and really enjoyed it! I halved the recipe, used turkey broth, margarine in place of butter, 2% milk and instead of ham used vegetarian bacon. I also added 1 tbls. Neufchatel cream cheese for a little extra richness. Thank you!
