Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

Winter 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (454 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 just made this recipe for the first time and am SO impressed. I always made my great-aunt's broccoli cheese soup, which was full of butter, lots of cheese & even a can of condensed cheddar soup. LOTS of fat & calories. And yet, this HEALTHY recipe beats the old one by a landslide!!! I am sure I'll have this recipe memorized in no time, as I'll be making it on a very regular basis. :)

I can't count the times I've made this soup. It's a stable in our house as both my husband and I love it. Have to admit that I use regular cheese as the low fat stuff just doesn't cut it ;-).

I made this soup for the first time last night and it turned out to be delicious. The only thing I had a problem with was I noticed the vegetables started to burn after the last 10 minutes of sautéing before adding the chicken broth. Also, it says “6 servings” but I think a better estimate is 3-4. Other than that, it turned out great and I will definitely make this again. In fact, I am looking forward to the leftovers today for lunch!

The flavor is great, but the low fat cheese didn't melt quite as it should have and the texture ended up a little weird.

I am always hesitant about "low fat" cream-type soups. This one is awesome! The consistency is perfect, the flavor fantastic. My very picky husband gobbled it up. It's even better the second day. My only tweak was to use slightly less sour cream.
