Blending only half of the soup smooth gives it a great texture. If you’d like to make this soup vegetarian, simply skip the ham and use vegetable stock instead of chicken – it’ll still be rich and delicious! EQUIPMENT NOTE: You will need a blender.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped or grated carrot
1 cup chopped or grated white onion
3 ounces chopped lean ham
8 cups chopped potatoes
3 cups chicken stock
1 cup beer
3 ounces grated cheddar cheese
3 ounces grated gruyere cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat milk

Instructions

  1. In large pot, heat butter over medium until bubbly. Add carrot, onion and ham. Saute 5-10 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken stock, stir to combine. Simmer for 20 minutes, covered.
  2. Put about half the soup in a blender and process until smooth. Add back to pot. Add beer, cheese and milk. Stir to combine. Enjoy!
