4 Lean & Luscious Soups

There’s nothing like a bowl of hot soup to warm your bones and cheer your feelings. As a meal starter or as the entrée itself, these soups will prove to be delicious and satisfying – without a lot of calories, fat, or fuss.

Creamy Chicken Chowder: Cottage cheese and skim milk replace the cream in this rich-tasting chowder that's so thick and creamy, you won't believe it's so low in fat. And what a great use for leftover chicken.

Garlic and White Bean Soup: Sounds exotic, doesn't it? No one will believe it only takes a few minutes to make this delectable soup. Keep canned beans on hand in the pantry and you'll be able to throw this together with only a moment's notice. 

Chicken and Rice Soup: The dill adds a nice touch to this delicious soup that's not only warm and homey, but also easy to prepare. You can have comfort food in no time. If you store leftover cooked rice in the freezer, it's always ready for times like this. Pre-cooked rice is also an easy alternative.

Creamy Potato Soup: A delight served hot on a chilly day or served cold on a hot day, this versatile soup is a real taste treat. It has a thick, creamy texture that tastes a lot like real cream.
