“Another hearty low-fat soup from Lynn Fischer's "Fabulous Fat-Free Cooking" I've altered it slightly, adding the use of fresh herbs for additional flavor.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Coat a large non-stick pot with cooking spray.
  3. Add the onions, cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onions start to turn color.
  4. Uncover and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, until golden.
  5. If necessary, add 1 to 2 tablspoons water to prevent sticking.

  7. Cover and bring to almost a boil.
  8. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
