Serving Size: 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 4 medium potatoes (peeled and cubed) (about 4 cups)
  • 1 onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional garnishes: sliced green onions, shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, diced ham, croutons, soup crackers

Instructions

  1. Combine potatoes, onion, garlic powder, ground black pepper, and broth in a large saucepan. Cover and cook over medium high heat until boiling.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally (12–15 minutes).
  3. Use a potato masher or fork to slightly mash the potatoes. This will also thicken the soup. There should still be pieces of potato in the soup.
  4. Stir in the peas, milk, and shredded cheese. Cook and stir until the cheese is melted (3–4 minutes).
  5. Add garnishes and serve right away.

Tips

Baked potatoes can be used in place of uncooked potatoes to speed the cooking time. Peel the baked potatoes and combine them with the other ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the soup is heated through.

Wash and dry all fresh produce before preparation.
