  • 3 ½ cups peeled and diced potatoes

  • 1 cup diced cauliflower

  • 1 cup frozen corn

  • ¾ cup diced cooked ham

  • cup finely chopped onion

  • cup diced celery

  • 3 cloves garlic, diced

  • 4 cups water, or as needed to cover

  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules

  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper

  • 5 tablespoons butter

  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups milk


  1. Combine potatoes, cauliflower, corn, cooked ham, onion, celery, and garlic in a large soup pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir chicken bouillon, salt, and white pepper into mixture.

  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk in flour to make a paste. Cook for 1 minute and gradually whisk milk into flour mixture until smooth. Continue cooking until thick, 4 to 5 minutes, whisking often.

  3. Stir milk mixture into soup and cook until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Bouillon can be broth you have prepped ahead and frozen, and garlic needs to be fresh if you can.
