This was very good and easy to make. I switched things around a little and replaced broccoli with orange colored 'cheddar cheese' cauliflower. Used whole milk, little bit of half and half and some buttermilk. Omitted the ham and cornstarch. The vegetables were sauteed on the stove top then transferred to a crock pot along with the broth and cooked on HIGH for 3 hours then LOW for another 4-5 hours. I did not add the dairy until the last 10 minutes of cooking to avoid curdling. Pureed the soup and it was thick enough that I decided not to use the cornstarch. The soup leftovers will thicken up by today. Topped with green onions, fresh parsley, freshly cracked black pepper. In the fall, I plan to try this soup recipe again using canned clams. Thank you!
I made this today, and I cut the recipe in half since there were only two of us eating today. Very good!! Husband loved it! I did make a few changes..used half n half and heavy cream, equal parts..and skipped the ham. Will definitely make again!!!
This is my new favorite recipe! I LOVE this soup! I think next time I'll use less cream (what are you supposed to do with the other half a quart of cream by the way??) and sub milk instead. But this was YUMM!!!
Tried this soup as both cream of potato and cream of broccoli - it was a hit both times. My grandmother (who is very particular about her cream of potato soup) couldn't stop raving about it! We will be making this a lot in the future. Thanks for sharing!
This soup was delicious. I used half & half instead of heavy cream, and flour instead of cornstarch. Looking forward to making it again as clam chowder, great recipe!
My wife, myself, and our four kids all loved this recipe. Dirt easy to make.
My family loves this soup,they request it at least once a week.Thanks for sharing!
Excellent soup, one of the best I ever had. Takes some time to make it but well worth it.
By far the best i have ever made od eaten 10 stars!!!!!
