How To Make Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

You can make this delicious ham and potato soup in the crockpot, the instant pot, or on the stovetop. Here’s how to make ham and potato soup on the stovetop (for the other directions, see below):

  1. Sauté your garlic, onions, carrots, and celery in olive oil on the stovetop until the onions are translucent (about 10 minutes).
  2. Add all remaining ingredients (except milk and peas) to the pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Allow the soup to boil for 10-12 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. Then, reduce the heat and stir in milk and peas.
