With two energetic (but picky) toddlers, sometimes I feel like we live off of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in my home. We mix it up with different jelly or bread but sometimes I just want something different for lunch. Something savory, something creamy, something delicious….
I have been craving potato soup for quite a while. After looking at the nutritional values on the prepared soups at the grocery store, I noticed how fattening a lot of them are. As a stay at home mom trying to stay healthy, a store bought can just won’t do. I decided to come up with my own low-fat potato soup recipe!
Leftovers – they’re great and all, but they just get forgotten in our home. This recipe has that in mind and has been reduced down to the perfect amount to serve one person! It is simple, kid-friendly, and low-fat. You could even share it with your toddler! My favorite thing is that it only has 8 ingredients that are found in most homes!
- 1 medium potato
- 1 cup low fat milk
- ½ cup broccoli
- ½ medium carrot
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- ½ cup cheddar cheese (or less, to preference)
- Chop potato, broccoli, and carrot into bite sized pieces.
- Add milk, potato, broccoli, carrot, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to small pan.
- Bring to a boil then simmer on medium to low heat for 30 minutes or until potatoes are softened.
- Add cheese. Serve and enjoy!
