Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup chopped onion

  • 1/3

    cup celery (optional)

  • 2

    cups chopped, cooked ham

  • 4-5

    cups chopped sweet potatoes (cut into 1/2" cubes)

  • 2 1/2

    cups homemade chicken stock

  • 2

    cups water

  • 1 1/2

    tsp. salt

  • 1/2

    tsp. black pepper

  • 1/4

    cup arrowroot*

  • 2

    cups almond milk* & 1/4 cup butter*

Directions

Combine onion, celery, ham, sweet potatoes, chicken stock, water, salt & pepper in a large pot. (Remember to reduce the amount of salt if you are using chicken stock/broth that is already salted.) Bring to a boil and turn down heat to low or medium/low to keep soup at a low simmer. Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, whisk together the arrowroot and part of the almond milk (about 1/2 a cup) in a medium saucepan until smooth. Add the rest of the almond milk and butter and bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute to thicken. Add the thickened milk mixture to the soup (after the sweet potatoes are tender) and stir until well incorporated.
