Servings: 6 to 8 heathy servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 stalks of celery chopped
  • 1/2 cup spicy mustard okay to sub regular mustard
  • 2 pounds red skin potatoes cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 8 cups 64 ounces chicken broth, more if needed
  • 2 pounds thick-cut ham cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives chopped, for garnish


  • Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent or just starting to brown. Add the garlic and celery and saute until fragrant, about 2 more minutes. Stir in the mustard and toss so that everything is well coated.
  • Add the chopped potatoes to the pot and cover in the chicken broth. Cover and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Add the ham and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Turn the heat off, add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and taste to determine if it needs any additional seasoning.
  • Garnish with the chives and enjoy!
