As soon as the autumn air turns crisp, I crave soup! I especially love creamy, rich soups. However, large bowls of these soups often don’t fit within my calorie goals, so instead I make skinny versions that I can eat all winter long! By using cauliflower and Greek yogurt as the creamy base, we save calories and add nutrients!
Skinny Loaded Baked Potato Soup
Recipe Type: Soup
Serving Size: 2 cups
Makes 5 servings
- 1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets (about 3 cups)
- 1 cup milk (1%)
- 2 cups fat-free chicken broth, divided
- 3 russet potatoes, cubed
- 4 slices turkey bacon (gluten-free, if needed)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 white onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ⅓ cup fat-free, plain Greek yogurt
- 1 green onion, diced
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and boil until cauliflower is tender and able to be easily pierced with a fork.
- Using a slotted spoon, remove cauliflower from the water and place in a food processor. Add 1 cup milk and 1 cup chicken broth to the food processor and blend until smooth.
- In the pot of water used to boil the cauliflower, boil potatoes until tender. Drain water and set the potatoes aside.
- While potatoes are boiling, heat turkey bacon in a skillet until browned on both sides. Set aside on paper towels until cooled, then dice.
- In a large pot, heat olive oil, then add onions. Sauté until onions start to turn translucent. Add garlic and sauté another 1-2 minutes.
- Pour the cauliflower mixture and another cup of chicken broth over the onions and heat on medium-low. Add Greek yogurt and mix until smooth.
- Stir in potatoes, bacon, and green onions. Cook for another 15 minutes.
- Serve warm and sprinkle with desired toppings.
