Ham and Broccoli Soup With Potato

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sooz Cooks

This is a delicous soup for using your leftover ham, or I sometimes buy the already diced ham at my grocery store.

Used this as a base for a recipe and it was fabulous. I don't think the substitutions I made changed the recipe overall, so I will still rate it. I used frozen, shredded potatoes and broccoli florets. I used the kitchen shears to chop the broccoli into bite size pieces in the pot. My family doesn't care for velveeta, so I used about 8 ounces of cheddar, cubed. It is important to always mix some hot liquid with the flour to avoid lumps, so I did do that. Everyone thought the soup was fabulous. I did omit the ham and used vegetable stock to keep it vegetarian. Looking forward to having this again soon! Thanks for sharing!
