Baked Potato Soup

Cauliflower is the secret to diversifying the nutritional profile of this soup. Lean turkey bacon and reduced-fat cheese bring all the flavor with less fat. If you have a little extra time, caramelized onions make a wonderful replacement for chives as a delicious topping.

Ingredients

  • 2 russet potatoes, washed and dried
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, stem removed, cut into florets
  • 1½ cups fat-free, low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1½ cups skim milk
  • ½ cup plain, fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 6 Tbsp. chopped chives, divided
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 5 Tbsp. reduced-fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions

  1. Poke potatoes with a fork and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Turn over and microwave another 3 – 5 minutes, until tender. Cool. Peel potatoes.
  2. Steam cauliflower with water in a large covered pot until tender. Drain and return to pot over medium heat. Add vegetable broth, milk, potatoes and bring to a boil. Use an immersion blender to puree until smooth.
  3.  Add the yogurt, half the chives, salt and pepper and cook on low another 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Top each serving with cheese, remaining chives and bacon.
