I enjoy making this soup when it’s cold outside and I am always looking for easy ways to add veggies to my meals. Here is a great recipe I came up with while making an old-time family favorite. And the best part is you can “SNEAK” in all these veggies by putting them in a food processor so your kiddos won’t even know it’s there! It has all the comfort taste as the regular version, but all the “hidden” veggies make it healthy and delicious!
Potato and Ham Garden Soup
1 1/2 lbs fully cooked all natural uncured boneless ham, skin removed and cut into bite-size pieces
4-5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 cups baby spinach, food processed or roughly chopped
1/3 cup green peas
1 medium zucchini, chopped or food processed
1 TBSP butter
salt to taste
Saute the onion in the butter until soft. Fill a large pot 1/3 full with water on medium high. Add salt, potatoes, onions, and ham. Bring water to a boil and boil for about 10 min or until potatoes are done. Meanwhile, put the spinach and zucchini in a food processor and roughly chop or chop them by hand. Once potatoes are done, add peas, spinach and zucchini. Mix and let boil for another 2 min. Add more salt if needed. Serves 4-6. You can serve this with warm french bread for dipping. YUM!
