Have you tried a Ham and Vegetable Soup where every bite is full of flavor and texture! If not, this is your chance to try! This hearty and savory broth paired with vegetables, soft egg noodles and diced sweet ham, will keep you full and satisfied!! Let me show you how!!
what is a good broth to use for this recipe
For this recipe, I used my ham bone broth as the base. Click here to see how to make the ham bone broth. This soup has all the deep flavor from the ham bone broth, then simmered again with veggies and seasonings, bringing out the favors to the max!! A tasty, hearty noodle soup that spells comfort!! You do not want to miss out!!
why do you add the chopped ham towords the end?
Adding the chopped hams more towards the end will ensure that the honey baked flavor hams stay savory and chewy. If they get boiled for extended time, the texture will become much softer and the flavors can be diminished. I always store my leftover ham in the freezer and defrost them before I add them into this soup. It works wonders!!
What are some alternative ingredients and tips?
- A chicken broth can be used in lieu of the ham bone broth
- Different types of noodles are just as fine. The egg noodles tend to hold it’s texture better longer.
- Left over soup can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for about 2 days.
- Extra Wide Egg Noodles
- Simply Organics Thyme
- Simply Organics Sage
- San Antonio Whole Bay Leaves
- Costco Honey Baked Ham
