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.
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
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.
