    PAFoodie's Note:

    I recently needed a soup for my daughter who wasn't feeling well. There was leftover ham in the fridge but my usual ham and potato soup included milk or cream, which is not the best thing for a touchy tummy, so this quick soup was born. The amount of the various ingredients is very flexible so don't worry if you use more or less of any one ingredient. The name comes from the traditional mix for Mirepoix which includes onions, celery, carrots and often ham or bacon.

      I glanced at this recipe, modifing it for what I had on hand. Probably used 3 onions, 5 or 6 stalks of celery and a similar amount of carrot. I omitted the ham, used only 1 potato. In addition to thyme, I added a generous amount of parsley. I completely forgot I was supposed to use chicken broth - I simply cooked this in whater. At any rate, this is great! Very homey, and super low cal. I didn't even miss the chicken broth I completely forgot to add. Good soup with LOTS of potential for tweaks!
