Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

Winter 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (460 votes)

This satisfying remake of broccoli chowder benefits from the creamy texture of cooked potatoes and smooth, tangy reduced-fat sour cream instead of getting its richness from as much as a cup each of cream and cheese. Not only is the flavor vibrant, but a single serving gives you over half of the daily recommendation for vitamin C.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I love this soup, as it was a hit with my family as well. However, instead of doing the hand mash of the veggies I did a mid-level puree of about 1/3 and I added more chicken stock, as a "chowder" was just too chunky. Overall the flavors...

I've been dieting, and I'm absolutely in love with this soup. I skip the cheese and add lots of pepper and hot spices from my cupboard to give it an extra kick. And I top it off with plain low-fat yogurt. Yum

I make alot of soups like this (zuchinni, cauliflower) and find them to be great. I often freeze portions as an easy "go to" when I do not have the energy to cook. I have found that a little Riccota (part skim) instead of sour cream really makes it even better. In addition, hand blenders work like magic for soups like this. Great way to get alot of vegtables in one sitting, really can throw whatever vegtables you might have around in.
