Kraft Food and FamilyPosted: January 11, 2008
So, I got my copy in the mail today and everything in it looks good! We’re kind of on a health kick in my house (we’ll see how long that lasts, my goal is to lose 100 lbs. – wish me luck) so I’m on the lookout for healthy, low-cal, low-fat stuff in addition to low sodium. Hopefully I can find enough things that don’t taste like cardboard so I can keep the healthier eating up 🙂
I’m thinking that this soup looks excellent, but I’m not so sure. I usually only like Velveeta when it’s melted with Rotel and I can dip chips in it! I’ll try it out, though, what the heck.
Velvety Vegetable Cheese Soup
1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot mix
2 cans (14 oz. each) fat-free reduced sodium chicken broth
3/4 lb. (12 oz.) Velveeta, cut up
Place vegetables and broth in large saucepan; cover.Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Mash vegetables with potato masher to desired consistency. (I’d probably leave them somewhat chunky)
Stir in Velveeta; cook 5 minutes or until Velveeta is melted and soup is heated through, stirring frequently.
Makes 6 servings, 1 cup each.
