I really enjoy potato soup, and this rich creamy version is different than most I've tried. I like its lemon and cilantro flavors, but you can adjust the ingredients to best suit your family's taste buds.

Roasted Pepper Potato Soup


Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) roasted sweet red peppers, undrained and chopped
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3 cups diced peeled potatoes
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed

Directions:
  1. In a large saucepan, saute onions in oil until tender. Stir in the roasted peppers, chilies, cumin, salt and coriander. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in potatoes and broth; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in cilantro and lemon juice. Cool slightly. In a blender, process the cream cheese and half of the soup until smooth. Return all to pan and heat through.
