The weather today said SOUP for dinner. It also said don’t run out to the store. So, I used what I had to make up a soup.
I served Irish Soda Bread on the side.
GF Red Potato and Ham Soup
6 red potatoes, washed and diced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
1/2 can Swanson’s chicken broth
3 1/2 cups water
2 cups diced ham (I cut up leftover spiral ham)
5 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (I used King Arthur)
2 cups milk
Fresh chives, as garnish
In large stockpot, combine potatoes, carrots, onion, broth, and water? Bring to a boil and cook 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Then add ham until heated through. in a separate bowl, combine flour and butter until a paste. Then slowly add milk to flour paste, whisking the entire time until smooth. Add milk mixture to soup, stirring constantly. Heat completely through.
Serve topped with fresh chives.
