Canadian Bacon Potato Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kumquat the Cats fr

Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Identifying a Canadian recipe, for an American, was difficult. Good thing I found at least one good one, on the internet. St. Ives makes a wonderful vegetarian substitute for Canadian Bacon. Lower in fat than the original (which I understand is still pretty low in fat). This is a diabetic recipe, from Taste of Home's Light and Tasty. Exchanges: 1 starch, 1 lean meat, 1 vegetable. I have not tried this yet, but I will. Butter granules are new to me; I might as well experiment.
