Broccoli, Ham, and Sweet Potato Soup
There's nothing like a hearty soup to warm you up on a chilly day! When I was a teenager, I worked at a restaurant that had a ham and broccoli soup in their "soup of the day" rotation. This is my twist on that recipe!
- Serves: 4 persons
- 1tablespoon olive oil
- ¼cup diced red onion
- 1½ cups peeled and diced sweet potatoes
- 1teaspoon minced garlic
- 6cups water
- ½cup diced ham
- 2cubes chicken bouillon
- 2cups broccoli florets
- 1½ cups dry elbow macaroni
Step 1Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch oven and cook onion until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add sweet potato and garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add water, ham, and bouillon cubes; bring to a boil. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Add broccoli and until it reaches your desired tenderness, 4 to 5 minutes.
Step 2Meanwhile, bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta and add to the soup. Serve immediately.
