Low-fat milk, light sour cream, and cheese made with 2% milk make this Light & Creamy Potato Soup a healthier alternative to regular versions. The broccoli and carrots also give it some valuable nutrients.

I like my soup a little chunkier than some you can get out. I like Panera potato soup but I don’t think there is any cheese in it, and if there is I think it may be cream cheese (or so I’ve heard). I like some good ol’ cheddar cheese in there.
The other great thing about soup is that you can make a pot of it and have leftovers for lunch the next day, or even another dinner. It is also good to freeze, and then if you are busy or not feeling well you will have a quick and virtually effortless option for dinner.
When serve soup I usually make some sort of bread, roll or biscuit, like these Light Yogurt Drop Biscuits. It gives the meal a little more substance for me and it rounds out the meal nicely.
