2 cups boiling water
2 cups 1% milk
2 cups diced potatoes
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
1/2 cup diced celery
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup low-calorie margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups shredded low-fat cheddar
1 cup cubed lean ham
Heat water in a large pot.
Add the potatoes, cauliflower, celery, onion, salt and pepper to boiling water.
Cover and cook over med-high heat for 10 minutes. Do not drain!
In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt margarine then add flour. Slowly add milk while whisking mixture.
Allow the sauce to thicken, then add to the veggie mixture.
Slowly stir in the cheddar until melted, add ham cubes and stir.
Do not bring soup back to boil.
You can serve immediately if you like, I like to transfer the soup to my slow cooker and leave it on low heat until ready to eat.
