Velvety potato and cheese soup

This is another one of the recipes I developed for my liquid diet after my gastric sleeve weight-loss surgery.  It is, however, a delicious, velvety-smooth, low-cal, low-fat soup suitable for all the family, and suitable for those following any low-fat diet, including those on a reflux diet. 

Velvety Smooth potato and cheese soup | liquid diet | bariatric surgery diet | reflux diet | low-cal | low-fat

Ingredients (for 2 tiny portions for liquid post-bariatric-surgery diet) – increase as required

  • Approx. 250ml chicken or vegetable stock (I used my home-made hen stock, but any good stock, even made with stock cubes/pots, will work)
  • 1 small potato
  • 1 low-fat cheese triangle

Method

Peel the potato and cut it into small cubes.  Place it in a small saucepan with the stock and bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for approximately 15 minutes, until the potato is fully cooked and very soft. 

Add the cheese triangle and place everything in a fine blender (I used my Nutribullet). 

Serve and enjoy! 🙂

Note: This super-velvety creamy soup is also delicious with the addition of a sprinkle of chilli powder and garlic granules/powder (I always use the ‘aglio e peperoncino’ mix I get from Italy, but you can just add both ingredients separately). 

Gloriously simple, gloriously good!
