This method was good but it needed a little more zip for my taste. I ended up sauteing the onion and celery, and I added a few carrots and a red pepper for color and a bay leaf and some fresh thyme for flavor. Once the veggies were halfway soft I continued on, using boxed chicken stock as I don't usually keep bouillon on hand. I added extra ham (maybe 1.5 cups) since I was trying to use up leftovers. I think next time I'll try it with less ham--it was just a little too much in my version. Finally, I had kale that needed using up so I tossed it in for the last few minutes and it was delicious. I do think it would be just as good without the kale, but it was a pleasant addition. I think you could do lots of variations on this soup!
