Weight Watcher Wednesday - Skinny Potato Soup

Oops! All day yesterday I thought it was Tuesday. You see, these things happen when you stay at home and you are a menopausal woman!! I completely missed my WW Wednesday recipe. So, today, Thursday, I will post the recipe. 



This Skinny Potato Soup does not taste skinny at all. It is creamy and delicious, just like you want potato soup to taste. You can always load it up with low-fat cheese, bacon and onion to make it a loaded potato soup but I find that I enjoy it without the extras. 

Skinny Potato Soup

1 bag Ore-Ida frozen hash brown potatoes, cubed
4 cans or 8 cups of fat-free chicken broth

Pour broth in to a large pot. Add potatoes and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.

Add:
1 package envelope Pioneer fat-free country white gravy mix (this is what makes it creamy without adding all the heavy cream that is normally in potato soup)
1/2 cup water

In a small bowl, blend water and gravy mix. Add gravy mixture to potatoes. Simmer an additional 20 minutes.

Serving size is 1 1/2 cups and equals 2 points.

This soup is a generous serving and very filling and delicious. I have served this to many people and everyone is astounded that it is fat-free. Enjoy!

Do you have a favorite low-cal, low-fat recipe? If so, I would love for you to leave me your link in the comments section!
