I guess this could also be called Cheesy Potato and 'Leftover Veggie' Soup. It's my go-to creation on unexpectedly blustery days when there are a few rag tag veggies just hanging out in my fridge. You could increase the amount of potatoes and just leave it as a Cheesy Potato Soup, but why not put those extra veggies into action! You could add brocoli and cauliflower as I did this past week. You can also add diced carrots, cabbage, asparagus, sauteed bell pepers....probably not all in the same pot....whatever.
Is this low calorie? I guess it could be based on the choices you make in low fat cheeses and milk. But it's probably okay to indulge in a truly hearty, thick and comforting soup once in a while. Right?
Oh, and sprinkle some crumbled bacon over the top sometime...just for me.
