Creamy Potato Broccoli Soup (Diabetic)

Ingredients:

1 can (14 ounces) fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 large onion, chopped
4 medium potatoes (about 7 ounces each), peeled and coarsely diced
1 1/2 cups fat-free half-and-half
2 teaspoons butter-flavor granules(such as Butter Buds)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
10-ounce package frozen chopped broccoli, partially thawed
1/2 cup finely shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Method:

Combine chicken broth, chopped onion, and diced potatoes in a large pan. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 2025 minutes, or until potatoes are very tender when pierced with a fork. Drain off liquid and reserve. Remove 2 cups of potato and onion mixture and set aside. In the pan, mash the remaining potato mixture with an electric mixer. Mix in cooking liquid. Whisk in half-and-half, butter-flavor granules, salt, and pepper. Break apart broccoli. Stir broccoli and reserved potatoes and onions into soup. Return to stove, cover, and cook at a gentle simmer for 1015 minutes, or until soup is heated through and broccoli is tender; stir periodically to prevent sticking. Spoon 1 cup into each bowl and sprinkle with cheese and chopped green onions.
