"This soup was great, so creamy. I add some carrots and green beans to it and it has a little more fiber and a little more heartiness to it."

  1. Combine potatoes, carrots, green beans, celery, onion, ham, and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in chicken bouillon and pepper.
  2. Melt butter in a separate saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a with fork and cook, stirring constantly, until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk so lumps do not form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the milk mixture into stockpot and cook soup until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
