4 cans fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, (14 oz ea)

Comments: This creamy, low-fat soup uses potatoes as a thickener instead of heavy cream. It's so rich and thick, you'll never miss the calories!

|“This root [the potato], no matter how much you prepare it, is tasteless and floury. It cannot pass for an agreeable food, but it supplies a food sufficiently abundant and sufficiently healthy for men who ask only to sustain themselves. The potato is criticised with reason for being windy, but what matters windiness for the vigorous organisims of peasants and labourers?”|
