Healthy Potato Soup

Great news for you all….. if you love potato soup I have a delicious healthy recipe for you!!!

I have a serious love for potato soup…. so I needed to come up with a healthy version of this delicious soup.

Healthy Potato Soup

Ingredients:

2 Cauliflower heads (chopped)

10 small red potatoes (cubed)

1 pkg turkey bacon

1 box reduced sodium chicken stock

4 carrots (peeled & sliced)

3 stalks celery (diced)

1 red onion (diced)

2 tbsp garlic (minced)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Directions:

Place the chopped up cauliflower and potatoes into a crockpot (You don’t have to peel the potatoes). In a frying pan on medium heat saute the carrots, celery, onion, garlic and olive oil for about 5 minutes until slightly softened.

Place the veggies into the crockpot with the cauliflower and potatoes. Dump in chicken stock until just covered, I used 1 box.

Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Once the potatoes are cooked through take out the emersion blender and blend until smooth. If you don’t have an emersion blended you can use a regular blender. Pour in the almond milk and mix together.

On the stove fry the turkey bacon over medium high heat. I actually used venison bacon because I had it but I realize that not everyone has venison bacon laying around so turkey bacon works just as good. Dice up the bacon and add to soup. If you have time let cook longer so flavors will blend together but if you can’t wait you can eat it right away!

I like to top my soup with a little reduced fat colby jack shredded cheese.

I hope you guys enjoy this amazing recipe! It is Scott approved for those of you who have a hubby who doesn’t like super healthy food.

Chicken Gnocchi Soup

As promised I have a picture of my yummy Chicken Gnocchi Soup and even the recipe!!! This soup turned out so good. I just ate some of the leftover soup for lunch.

This soup was very easy to put together. I did it while I was finishing up a paper for school.

I used a nice big dutch oven to make the soup. The dutch ovens do a great job holding heat and heating evenly.

I got my Gnocchi from the farmers market. You can probably find some in the grocery store in the freezer section if you dont want to go to the farmers market to find some.
