I got 8 points on my ww calculator
Just an FYI for WW member, used the ww website and points are this: for 2 serving- 7pts /serving. For 4 servings-3pts/serving. I plan on trying this soon and will rate it then. Sounds delicious.
I left out the ham and it was very tasty!
This is a wonderfully wicked tasting soup to be so light! This is definitely the kind of comfort food called for by frigid Alaska winter nights. It's just a bonus that I don't have to feel guilt-laden after eating it! I did saute the veggies in a bit of cooking spray before adding the remaining ingredients and added 1 can of fat free evaporated milk to make it even creamier. Thanks Mrs. Ambrosia for a winning recipe.
My husband and I cook a lot and enjoy trying new recipes. It is VERY rare that we will make the same recipe more than once. My hubby asks me to make this recipe every time it rains or snows!! I do customize it a little... I add more broccoli, cheese (fresh shredded cheddar) and ham than the recipe calls for and I also add 1/2 a large jalapeno.
This soup is so good! It turned out thick, rich and creamy and is very filling. You would never guess that it is light. Takes a while to chop up everything but the result is worth the effort. Make a double batch. Thanks for posting!
This was delicious!!! So cheesy and perfect on a cold rainy day! The only thing I did different was after I cooked the veggies I ran about half of the veggie mixture through the blender and then incorporated it back in. I prefer my soups creamier and this did the trick beautifully!
My husband and I really enjoyed this soup! Will definitely be making this again soon!
I used 4c water and 2c milk (staying with the 2 tbsp flour per cup of milk and 2 boullion cubes per cup of water) and 2 oz canned chicken instead of ham since I didn't have any. I only had regular velveeta so had to use that. I ended up with 4 generous servings with a PointsPlus value of 7.
It is a fabulous recipe.. I have been making this soup for 10 yrs.. It never tires.. I also omit the celery because of it's strong flavor. I also rotate between using broccoli and cauliflower.. Both are delicious. Also at times I have used light cheeze whiz.. Another tasty option...
Excellent soup! Will definitely make this again and again. I doubled the recipe and I will probably get 5 or 6 servings out of it. I used frozen broccoli and omitted the celery because I didn't have any on hand. My DH really liked this soup and asked if I would make it again. Definitely a good sign! This will be a permanent in my collection.
