This soup is so yummy and comforting! It's a great way to use up any leftover ham you might have after the holidays. The original recipe was called pursian vegetable, but we had no idea why it was called that, and my dad and brother love the Prince of Persia movie, so they just kept calling it that!!
1 bag frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cups chopped ham
1 (32 oz.) carton chicken broth
3 cups water
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tblsp. butter
1 can evaporated milk
1/3 cup cornstarch + 1/2 cup water
In a large saucepan, bring vegetables, onion, ham, chicken broth, water, garlic powder and pepper to a boil. Cook until veggies are tend, stirring occasionally. Add butter and milk. Return to a boil. Combine water and cornstarch. Stir into boiling soup. Cook and stir until slightly thickened. Serve!
