Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

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.

i forgot to add the flour and dry mustard, and chose not to add cheese and sour cream. instead, i ran a hand blender thru the cooked soup, and served with a variety of shredded cheeses so everyone could pick the kind they wanted. i had asiago in mine, and it was very good.

Added some leftover Thanksgiving turkey and it was a meal! So delicious, reminded me of chicken/turkey divan, but in soup form!

The reduced-fat cheese was stringy and clumped up after adding to the soup. Soup would be better just adding some cheese on top. Won't be making again.

My daughter and I made this and is smelled so good we couldn't wait until it was done. I used low sodium chicken broth, twice the amount of garlic and cayenne. FABULOUS!!!
