  • 24 oz tiny yellow potatoes cut into ¾-inch cubes
  • 1 medium large onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 12 oz can evaporated fat-free milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 - 1 ½ cup diced cooked ham
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • ½ to 1 head broccoli chopped into bite sized pieces
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large slow cooker, place the potatoes, onion, and garlic. Pour the chicken broth over top. 
  • Allow to cook on high for 3 hours.
  • Whick the cornstarch with the evaporated milk in a bowl. Whisk into the broth. 
  • Using an immersion blender, puree some of the soup so that it thickens. Leave some large chunks of potato for texture or puree it all to your liking.
  • Season with salt and pepper and add the thyme, ham, carrots, broccoli, and cheese into the soup. 
  • Cover and let cook 30 minutes longer until the cheese has melted into the soup and the broccoli has softened a bit. 
  • Serve ladled into bowls with extra cheese on top if desired.
