Potato Leek Soup

I loooove potato leek soup but don’t like the super high calorie count in most! This is a lighted up version that I love! I also highly recommend the garnishes, they really make this soup extra yummy without tipping the scale!

You’ll Need-

2 Large Leeks (remove the green leafy parts and chop)
1/2 Large White Onion (chopped)
2 Potatoes (peeled and cut into cubes)
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp butter
4 Cups Fat Free Chicken Stock
1 Cup 2% Milk
Salt & Pepper


Turkey Bacon Crumbles
Light Cheddar Cheese
Chopped Scallions

Chop and wash the leeks thoroughly and make sure to remove all of the dirt. In a medium pot, melt the butter on low heat, add flour and mix well. This will help to thicken the soup and give it more flavor. Add the chicken stock, leeks, onions and potatoes and bring to a boil.

Cover and simmer on low for about 20 - 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. If you like your soup a little on the chunky side you can use a potato masher or electric mixer to combine. If you like it on the smoother side, mix in a blender! Either way, mix the soup until desired consistency and slowly add the milk. Stir in salt and pepper. I think it needs quite a bit of both, but add seasoning in batches and taste along the way! Serve immediately.

Top with turkey bacon crumbles, shredded light cheddar cheese and scallions.
