Finding ways to dial the healthy up a notch
We suggest substituting low-fat sour cream, low-fat milk or skim milk for the two types of milk that we used in our original recipe if you need to lighten things up. Also, use low-fat shredded cheeses or non-fat cheeses if regular cheeses are too rich for your tastes. Not into too much dairy consumption? Remember that soy milk, rice milk, and even coconut milk can provide a creamy texture without the animal fats. Otherwise, lessen the milk portion by adding pureed (and cooked) cauliflower as a thickening agent for this soup.
