Cream soup without cream? Sure! Pureed silken tofu helps yield a smooth texture without imparting any taste. The roasted pepper puree boosts flavour and adds colour.

Ingredients

Fat free chicken broth

2 cup(s), reduced-sodium, or vegetable broth

Plain baked potato(es)

1 medium, peeled, diced (about 8 oz)

1 cup(s), chopped

Garlic clove(s)

Instructions

  1. In medium saucepan, bring broth, potato, onion, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes. Add asparagus; cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
