Are you huddled by the fire, dreaming of the day your toes will finally thaw out? This hot and hearty soup might help…
It won’t raise the temperature outside, but a steaming bowl of this flavor-packed paleo ham and potato soup will definitely make you feel all warm and cozy inside.
Here’s a little scoop on how this one came about…
I’m pleased to give my hubby a big shout out for the recipe! It was all his doing. He thought about what he wanted, shopped for the ingredients and was my ultimate taste-tester.
Gotta admit, I’m kinda proud of the guy. He’s a good cook, but this was his first original paleo recipe he’s come up with…and it’s awesome!
He insisted on it being easy to make with nothing that needed to be pre-cooked other than the ham.
The hardest part is probably chopping up all the veggies. The rest will come together for you in no time.
We made ours with chicken broth and leftover cooked ham. Obviously if you have stock from a bone-in ham, it would be delicious as well! Note too, this one includes both red and white sweet potatoes for a little extra variety.
We made it savory with a touch of maple syrup and mustard (trust me, it’s awesome) but feel free to spice up the basic recipe any way you like. Taste while cooking and adjust accordingly. As-is, the layers of flavors in this one are pretty amazing.
Per hubby’s insistence, this soup doesn’t involve pureeing anything (he said something about not wanting baby food in his soup!) And of course this recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free.
Let us know what you think…hubby is anxiously waiting for your tasty comments. :)
