Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

Winter 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (488 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 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.

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!!!
