"Frozen vegetables make this a quick soup to stir," comments Eileen Claeys, Long Grove, Iowa. "Turkey ham lends a hearty flavor with less fat."


  • 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup frozen cut green beans
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat process cheese (Velveeta), cubed


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first five ingredients; cover and cook over medium heat until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes (do not drain). Combine flour and milk until smooth; gradually add to the vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil; boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
  2. Stir in cheese; cover and let stand until melted, about 5 minutes. Stir before serving.
