German Potato Soup

German Potato Soup

Potato soup is usually filled with heavy, fatty ingredients, but it just tastes so good! This lighter version uses nonfat yogurt to get a creamy consistency, and lots of veggies to ramp up the flavor. You won’t be missing the extra calories, especially when there are crunchy turkey bacon bits sprinkled on top.
