  1. In a large pot, combine cauliflower and potatoes with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until tender but not mushy, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Drain off about 1/4 of the water. Stir in mushrooms, onion, ham and cheese. Cook, stirring, until cheese is melted and mixture is heated through, about 10 minutes.

I love soup and this is definitely in our rotation. I've made it a number of times and I can get even my picky relatives to eat a little. I don't put the mushrooms in anymore - I love mushrooms and will add them to just about anything but they don't really work in this. Also, if you feel like cutting the cost or want something more as a side, it's good without the ham, too. With the ham, it's a great meal all by itself.

I don't know - maybe I did something wrong. But my Velveeta didn't melt well with the water, and the soup ended up waaay too watery. I'd try this again, maybe with milk.

This was a different type of soup. My kids are asking when I will make it again. I think the next time I will try it with broccoli instead. And I will also sautee the onions first. I didnt add mushrooms since I dont eat them. We are looking forward to this soup again. It is a little pricey tho. The cheese alone cost was over $5.00, and the ham was $6.00. But it was well worth it.

My family just loved it and can't wait for me to make it again :-) Good one!

I don't add mushrooms or ham and saute onions before adding. 2 chicken boullion are enough.

I cooked down a ham bone with some chicken stock instead of plain water. I think this gave the soup way more flavor. I only used about half of the velveeta, and it was plenty.Also added a little garlic pepper and salt, because I add that to everything. Very easy and delicious.

It was a rainy day.. so of course, it called for soup. made this for my weekly girls night at my house! was amazing. I followed the recipe to a T, but.. you could add anything to this.. my gfs & i were thinking of adding some carrots, celery or even some squash next time. definatly adding this to my recipe box!

Mmmm, comfort food at its best. I added the buillion cube as suggested. I didn't peel the potatoes and that was fine. The mushrooms were great. We will definitely make again!
