Soup is a classic way to turn the holiday treat of roasted chestnuts into a light and lovely meal. This version is made more nutritious by swapping sour cream out and using plain, low-fat yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole roasted, bottled chestnuts
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions
  • ¾ cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 6 cups fat-free, low sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅓ cup low fat, plain greek yogurt
  • 1½ tsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place chestnuts on a jelly-roll pan and bake (15 minutes). Place chestnuts in a large bowl; cool to room temperature.
  3. Combine onion, carrot, and oil on pan; toss to coat vegetables. Bake until tender, stirring occasionally (1 hour). Add to chestnuts; stir in broth.
  4. Pour half of broth mixture into a blender; blend until smooth. Pour pureed mixture into a Dutch oven. Repeat procedure with remaining broth mixture.
  5. Stir in salt and pepper. Place pan over medium-high heat; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, and simmer (20 minutes).
  6. Ladle about 3/4 cup soup into each of 10 bowls; top each serving with about 1 tablespoon yogurt. Sprinkle with thyme. Serve immediately.
