Potato-Vegetable Soup 

This soup is so easy, and you can add whatever vegetables suit your needs or whatever you have on-hand. You can also switch it up and add ham instead of chicken—or add no meat at all for a vegetarian option. When I’m feeling in the mood (and not particularly interested in watching my fat intake), I add Gruyere or cheddar cheese for an added flavor—but don't forget about the extra fat this adds!

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
3-4 carrots, chopped
2 celery sticks, chopped
(Add any additional vegetables you have on hand: broccoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, parsnips, etc…)
2 pounds peeled and coarsely chopped Yukon gold potatoes
2 all-natural chicken breast ribs with skin
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups beer

1. Make stock by adding chicken breasts to boiling water, salt, pepper and garlic, and boil 3 hours. Cool chicken and remove skin and bones and dice chicken breast to add to soup. Reserve chicken stock.
