Creamy Vegetable Soup
This looks and tastes like a rich, cheesy soup but it's actually very low in calories and fat. The carrot gives it a nice color that makes it look cheesy. My kids love this and have no idea they are eating so many vegetables.
2 cups chopped onion
2 cups carrots, chopped
1 cup chopped celery
1 tablespoon oil
4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large head of cauliflower, chopped
6 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 In a large soup pot, saute onions, carrots, and celery in oil. Add potatoes and cauliflower and saute 5 minutes. Add broth, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 10-15 minutes until vegetables are tender.
2 Puree about 2/3 of the soup in a blender until smooth and return to the pan. Stir in sour cream and heat through--do not boil!
3 Garnish with favorite toppings: cheese, sour cream, green onion, bacon, etc.
