This is a "cream of potato soup" recipe that i just love! I made it a few days ago and it's awesome! There's no butter or flour, and only a bit of milk or cream for a whole pot ~ and lots of veggies if you want to add them.
Onions, celery and carrots chopped in small bits, in non-stick pot until softened a bit
Add tetra pack of low fat/ low sodium chicken stock
Add 4 or 5 red potatoes (more if they’re super small) chopped (skin on)
Lid on and bubble away til spuds are tender
Scoop out some of the potatoes and a bit of broth in a container, zip up with a hand blender, add in ½ cup full-fat milk or light cream (it’s for a whole pot!)
Add that puree back into soup, add some frozen corn or peas or green beans whatever takes your fancy. Add parsley & pepper to taste.
It’s amazingly rich and creamy the next day, after it ‘rests’
My friend calls this one a “I Can’t Cook Soup” but it’s really good! A meal for sure!
Brown 1 lbs. extra lean ground beef (or mix of beef & turkey) with diced onion, carrot, celery ~ Drain any excess fat of course!
Sprinkle ¼ or ½ package of taco seasoning mix over it – depends how spicy you want it
Add tetra pack of low-fat chicken stock or beef stock
Add one big can diced tomatoes
Add 3 cans Cream of Tomato soup (low fat if you can find it)
Add frozen corn & frozen green beans
Heat thru & there you go!
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now!
Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
