Chunky Potato, Cauliflour & Ham Soup

Submitted by: OIL_FIELD_WIFE

Introduction

I use this soup to sneak cauliflour to my family. They love it. It's very thick and hearty. Perfect for cold days, and goes good with a salad for a light summer meal.

Ingredients

    3 medium potatoes, peeled, cut in small cubes
    1 small head of cauliflower, cut in small cubes
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup finely chopped onion
    3 tablespoons margarine
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 tsp ground black pepper
    3 cups milk
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1 cup cubed cooked ham

Directions

Bring water and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil; add potatoes & cauliflower and cook until tender. Drain; reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid (add water to measure 1 cup if necessary).
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Sauté chopped onion in the hot butter until tender. Add flour to butter and onion mixture; stir until smooth. Season with a little pepper; continue to cook and stir for 1 minute. Gradually add potatoes & cauliflower, reserved 1 cup of cooking liquid, and milk. Mash potatoes and cauliflower to your liking - I keep mine really chunky. Stir well; add cheese and ham. Simmer soup over low heat, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes.

Top with a dab of sour cream if desired.

Chunky potato ham soup serves 6 to 8.
