Wednesday’s Helping: Slimming Down Broccoli-Cheddar Soup

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.
