Ham and Mock Potato Soup

Submitted by: BELLASMOMMA


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    6 Cups Chicken stock
    1 medium head cauliflower, cored & cut in small pieces
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 1/2 Cups finely diced Parma Ham (or any ham of your choice; or bacon)
    1/2 cup thinly sliced leeks or diced white onion
    1/2 clove garlic, minced
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/8 teaspoon white pepper
    Salt & pepper (your taste)
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives or tender leeks, for garnish

    **Another great topping is shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream

Directions

1. Put stock into a large pot and bring to a boil.
2. Add the cauliflower to the boiling stock and cook for about 6 minutes, until tender.
3. Use an immersion or regular blender to puree the cooked cauliflower with the stock. Keep hot.
4. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ham, leeks, and garlic and cook until slightly tender.
5. Stir the ham mixture into the pureed stock along with the cream and white pepper. Add salt and pepper to taste.
6. Serve in soup bowls and garnish with chopped chives.

-- The soup is great with shredded cheddar cheese and a dollup of sour cream!

  • Very tasty! Thinner that I expected but that's okay. I ended up with over 9 cups of soup (but that could depend on how big a cauliflower one used) so 4 servings would be rather large servings! We added cubes of cheddar cheese to our bowls of soup. Yum! - 10/29/13
