6 large Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
40 ounces low fat chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
6 carrots peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 sweet yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Parisien Bonnes Herb Blend of Chives, French tarragon, basil & dill
1 1/2 cups fat-free half-and-half
1 1/2 cups shredded low-fat cheddar
2 tablespoons chives chopped
low-fat sour cream
turkey bacon cooked and crumbled
green onions thinly sliced
Spray the inside of slow cooker with cooking spray and set the temperature to HIGH.
Pour diced potatoes, chicken stock, salt, pepper and red pepper into the slow cooker.
Saute sliced carrots in 2-3 tablespoons olive oil 3 minutes.
Add diced onion to the carrots and cook on medium-high until onion is translucent.
Add minced garlic and saute 30 seconds more.
Add sauted carrots, onion and garlic to the potato broth mixture.
Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or until potatoes have softened.
Using a potato masher, mash part of the cooked vegetables while they are still in the slow cooker. Only mash down on the vegetables 3-4 times.
Add herbs, half-and-half, cheese and chives. Mix well.
Once cheese has melted, ladle soup into bowls and garnish with sour cream, turkey bacon, extra cheese and chives (or green onions).
