Creamy Vegetable Soup

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.

Servings: 8

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Yuumy soup, my kids all ate it...but I think I will add less salt and pepper next time. I may have mis-measured:).
