Recipe: Smoky Potato Soup

 Our state like many others has been hit with a blizzard!   We had this wonderful soup after playing in the snow!

Here is the recipe!

Smoky Potato Soup
Smoked paprika and caramelized onions make this low cal soup rich and delicious.
5 medium Potato

1 tbsp  Smoked Paprika
2 tbsp Butter
2 tbsp Flour
3 cups Chicken Broth
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
1 Onion diced
2 cloves Garlic minced
2 Cups of Milk

Start off by cutting up potatoes into cubes and boiling until soft ( about 20 mins).  meanwhile caramelize onions in a dutch oven or a skillet on medium high heat.  once the onions are caramelized  mix in garlic, flour and butter.  brown flour for a minute then add broth (if using skillet move ingredients to a pot before adding broth) turn down heat to medium.  Once potatoes are soft… drain then mix into onion mixture.  Mash the potatoes with a masher.  Turn off heat at this point and add milk.  Serve warm… makes 8 servings

Gather your ingredients… Don’t have Smoked Paprika??? Use a little smoke flavoring instead (1 tsp)- or even bbq sauce (1 Tbsp)
 Cut up the potatoes.
 Boil them.
 Caramelize the onions then add garlic, butter and flour… brown for a minute then add broth.
 Now add smoked paprika (or smoke flavor or bbq sauce).  BTW I LOVE smoked paprika… its in most of my recipes!!!
 Once potatoes are cooked…add them into the dutch oven with the onion mix.
 Mash them up!  Isn’t this pic cool???!!!
Knock off the heat then add the milk.  YUMMY!
 This is SO rich, but without the RICH calories!!! Can’t beat soup on a cold day. (put a dollop of low fat sour cream if you wish…)
