    • 3½ cups chicken stock
    • 3½ cups peeled and diced potatoes
    • 1 cup diced cooked ham (from ham hocks)
    • ⅓ cup parmesan cheese
    • ½ cup diced celery
    • ½ cup finely chopped onion
    • 5 tablespoons butter
    • 5 tablespoons potato starch
    • 2 cups milk
    • ½ teaspoon salt, to taste
    • 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
    • Chopped chives, or flat leaf parsley, for serving

    Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot.

    Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.

    Stir in the chicken stock, salt and pepper.

    In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.

    Whisk in potato starch with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute.

    Slowly whisk in some milk, avoiding lumps, until all of the milk is added.

    Whisk in parmesan cheese.

    Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.

    Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through.

    Serve immediately with toasted gluten-free bread and butter, and chives, or parsley garnish, as desired.
