Ham and Potato Soup (No milk or cream)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a very easy potato soup that tastes creamy - but without any cream or milk. It's very versatile and can be made with a variety of veggies and meats - or is great with only potatoes. This is an adaptation of what a friend gave to me as a Weight Watchers recipe.

I have just tried this soup and it is amazing! I used real potatoes and added celery and onion. I will definitely be using this again.

I used the orida regular (little square) cubes. I doubled the batch because the potatoes are sold in 2 lb. bags. I have to say, I really enjoyed the taste of this soup. I followed the recipe exactly. I did though leave out the peas because of a co workers preference. I have several friends that re lactose intolerant and they couldn't believe it was milk/dairy free. I will be making this on a regular basis. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

Very easy to make! I used regular potatoes cubed and boiled in the broth. I tripled the recipe and had no leftovers with 8 people!
