Ham and Potato Soup-Whole 30

WP_20151217_003

Leftover Christmas ham?  This is a wonderful soup with a Germ twist to it. Paleo and Whole 30 compliant depending the fats you use. I love this.  There is an extra dash of flavor and it is a nice change to the old split pea and ham.

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons ghee or Kerrygold butter

1 medium onion, roughly chopped

1 cup cabbage or celery, diced

4-6 gold potatoes, diced

32 ounces chicken or vegetable stock

1 cup diced ham

1 cup milk (coconut or almond milk for Whole 30)

1 teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

dash cayenne pepper

Directions

In a large stock pot add ghee/butter, onions.  Let cook 5 minutes.  Add potatoes and spices and let cook another 5 minutes.  Add broth, ham and cook additional 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender.  Add milk, cabbage and let simmer for additional 10 minutes.  Season to taste.
