How to prepare hearty ham and potato soup

The Standard - By Wambui Kuria | June 16th 2016 at 08:13:16 GMT +0300

Keep warm with this amazing and filling soup. The ham gives it a meaty taste.

My children who are not fans of hot soup enjoy this soup tremendously - even my two-year-old asks for a second filling.

  5. 4. Easy recipe: Creamy macaroni with cherry tomatoes and chicken


3 ½ cups potatoes, peeled and cubed

1/3 cup celery, diced

1/3 cup onion, finely chopped

¾ cup cooked ham, diced

3¼ cups water

2 chicken cubes

Salt and pepper to taste

5 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups milk


Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a large cooking or stockpot.

Add water and bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken cubes, salt and pepper.

In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.

Whisk in the flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about one minute. Slowly stir in the milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added.

Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, four to five minutes.
