Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced (2 cloves)
  • 1 cup onions diced
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • ½ cup celery diced
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1 inch cubes about 1 lb or 5-6 medium sized potatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth use low/no sodium!
  • 2 cups cooked ham chopped in small 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped finely
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1.5 cups milk of choice
  • Optional to thicken : ¼ cup flour or tapicoa flour

Instructions

Stovetop Instructions:

  • In a large pot, heat olive oil. While oil is heating, chop veggies.
  • Sauté garlic, onions, carrots, and celery until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
  • While veggies sauté, chop ham/potatoes and gather other ingredients.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the pot, except milk and peas
  • Bring the soup to a boil. Allow it to boil for 10-12 minutes, or until your potatoes are fork tender.
  • Once cooked, reduce heat and stir in milk and peas.
  • For thickening: The soup will thicken as it cools, but if you prefer a richer, thick soup - add ¼ cup all purpose flour to a bowl. Scoop 1-2 cups of broth (it’s ok if a few veggie/ham pieces get in there too) into the bowl. Whisk together. Add flour mixture back into the soup and stir. Bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes and your soup will naturally thicken.

Crockpot Instructions:

  • In a sauté pan, heat olive oil. While oil is heating, chop veggies.
  • Sauté garlic, onions, carrots, and celery until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.

  • Add all cooked vegetables + all remaining ingredients except milk and peas to the crockpot
  • Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  • Once cooked, reduce heat and stir in milk and peas.
  • For thickening: The soup will thicken as it cools, but if you prefer a richer, thick soup - add ¼ cup all purpose flour to a bowl. Scoop 1-2 cups of broth (it’s ok if a few veggie/ham pieces get in there too) into the bowl. Whisk together. Add flour mixture back into the soup and stir. Bring to a boil on the stove for 2-3 minutes and your soup will naturally thicken.

Instant Pot Instructions:

  • Set instant pot to sauté for 10 minutes. Heat olive oil. While oil is heating, chop veggies.
  • Sauté garlic, onions, carrots, and celery until onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
