Broccoli-Cheese Chowder

Winter 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (450 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...

We loved this a lot!! We omitted the dry mustard and added a little red pepper flakes and it was delicious. Very good! Wonderful texture if your throat hurts. :)

Great recipe! Full of flavor, with simple ingredients. I shredded the carrot instead of dicing, and omitted the celery since we don't like it much. It was creamy without being too heavy. We served it with salad and a small heated onion roll. The perfect meal!

This soup is terrific! I make it once a month. Serve with whole grain bread to make it a meal. The kids love it as well!

This was excellent. We tried the soup prior to adding the cheese and sour cream, and it was delicious at that stage. Quick and easy too. Definitely a keeper.

This is a delicious vegetarian soup recipe. Plus, it's so easy to whip up on a weeknight after work. I made it even quicker using a bag of frozen broccoli, just add for the last 10 minutes of cooking. Turned out great!
