Paleo Potato Soup

Vittoria of Deliciously Gluten Free is hosting the October ‘Go ahead honey, it’s gluten free!’ and her theme for October is: Indigenous Food. I almost didn’t make this challenge in time since I’ve been so busy with the kiddos, and I am overly critical of myself with these sorts of things. Then, yesterday, my Door to Door Organics box arrived with a pile of local organic potatoes, and the light bulb went on in my head: “Potatoes are native to America,” I thought. So, here you go, fresh local organic potato soup, which we ate for dinner tonight, and even had seconds :-)

Dairy-Free Potato Soup

Saute for five minutes, in pre-heated soup pot:
1 & 1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
2 minced cloves of garlic
Saute one minute more.
5 peeled potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 cups chicken (or other) broth
2 cups water
Simmer, lid on, for four hours.
Remove the lid and break up the potatoes with a whisk.
Add (to taste) 3/4 to 1 tsp Herbamare seasoning

    Thanks. I wish it was a little more creative with the indigenous theme, but it does taste really good :-) Zoe, my 6 year old, even asked for more as a “late night snack.” It was 7:30, but she thinks that’s late :-)

    That’s so cute :) I think it’s great that your girls are growing up with such healthy food. I make various fruit & nut breads and the Trainer gets cranky if he doesn’t get any for his last meal when he gets home from work.

    I love Potato Soup!! I will be posting my soon too.

    We have been making Sophie some “soup.” She says “soup” so cutely and really enjoys it. It’s not that extravagant since she can’t have onions and seasonings, but it’s not bad either. We made her some creamy broccoli soup, which is essentially broccoli pureed with some salt. We can even add noodles (she can eat the gluten-free organic corn noodles by Mrs. Leepers).

    I’m so glad you participated in this! It’s fun. I hope we get to do it again.

    It’s really great that Sophie and my girls eat fruit and vegetables. It’s such a shame what some companies market at children. A friend of mine and I went out one time, and she was giving her daughter these Gerber snacks. “I tricked her into thinking it’s candy.” she told me. “It is candy.” I said. She turned it over and read the ingredients. Corn syrup, artificial flavor and color. Her face dropped. I could tell she felt deceived.

    It sort of reminds me of how people go into Whole Foods and just assume everything is organic. Sometimes when I see a woman with a toddler reaching for conventional produce I’ll ask her, “Do you know where the organic ______ is?” Often the answer I get is, “It’s not all organic?”
