Ham and potato soup

I was never a fan of soup, but some of them are ok with nice bread. These days I actually like certain veggie soups, which is why I gave this one a shot. It was a little too bland for me.

8 oz ham
1.5 lb potatoes
1 onion
1 celery stalk
1 carrot
3 cloves garlic
3 tbsp butter
0.25 cup flour
4 cup chicken broth
2 cup water
0.5 cup sour cream
1 tsp paprika
black pepper

Dice all the veggies and the ham into 0.5-inch cubes. Brown the butter in a pot and add the onion, celery, carrots, ham, paprika and garlic. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until onion is translucent. Add the broth, salt and potatoes. Cook until potatoes are soft.

Remove half of the potatoes and puree in a food processor. Add it back to the soup. Add the sour cream and cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
