My favorite flavor of soup is actually tomato soup, and I dunk low calorie crumpets into Amy's Low Fat Tomato Soup to create a satisfying dinner a lot of the time. As much as I love tomato soup, I'm always on the look for other soups to try. So, when I saw the Imagine Organic Potato Leek Soup on the shelf at Whole Foods, I just had to give it a try!
As you might guess, I'm a huge fan of potatoes, but I try to avoid them most of the time due to the fact that they are so high in calories/carbs. So, the idea of eating a lower calorie soup that tastes like potato was really intriguing to me. And, I have to say, that is exactly what this soup delivered!
After I warmed a cup of the soup, I added some low fat sour cream (a major staple for me!), and some chives. What resulted was both smooth and creamy. In fact, it tasted just like a baked potato, but is so much healthier at 100 calories per cup, with 2.5 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein (so only 2 weight watchers points). The organic ingredient list is also quite short, with the soup consisting mostly of potatoes, leeks, oil, garlic, and seasoning (so it is vegetarian, non-dairy and gluten free).
If you like potatoes and leeks, I recommend trying this soup! It satisfied both my soup and potato craving! If you'd like to make your own potato leek soup, stay tuned as we've been cooking our own recipe up here as well, and I'll be posting about it in the next few weeks once it is perfected.
So, what is your favorite soup? Do you make it yourself or buy it?
PS. In case you are on a soup kick -- here is a link to a delicious carrot soup recipe that we make sometimes. It is really low calorie, healthy, and delicious!
