Christmas is over and the leftovers have taken over my fridge. Mostly ham. I WAY overestimated how much ham I needed to bake.
So I literally have about five pounds of smoked ham in my fridge that has got to be used up – I’m freezing some, but today, I made a big pot of potato soup. It is perfect for the weather we’re having – cold and rainy.
This soup is lightened up by adding a good amount of cauliflower and less potoato. Once it’s all cooked up and pureed, you can’t even detect the cauliflower – so even your pickiest eater will be none the wiser. Muah ha ha…
And yes, this soup is creamy…but there’s no cream involved. Or milk, for that matter. If you puree at the end, the soup is silky smooth and decadent without the added fat!
Since this soup is so low in calories, feel free to garnish with a little shredded cheddar at the end. So good.
