Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon and Chives

Russ and I headed to Tangerini’s Spring Street Farm this weekend to pick up our first winter share.  Wow!  We came home with 2 FULL bags filled with produce from the sweetest carrots ever, pounds of potatoes (both sweet and white), butternut squash, broccoli, radishes and the largest beet I have ever seen, really…

And more!

My favorite part of the share is cutting fresh herbs to use all week in my cooking.  This weekend, I cut some thyme, sage and cilantro to bring home…Yup, I am happy!

I decided I would whip up some soup.  Butternut squash or potato?

Potato, it is!

With a few tweaks this recipe can be made low FODMAP.  I did use leeks in my recipe BUT scallions (green part only) or chives could easily be substituted. I also served my soup in a bread bowl for fun.  FODMAPers could use an appropriate GF roll or special soup dish.  Today, I worked on a very fun blog post with a dietetic intern, Lauren, from Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital…. Stay tuned, Lauren came up with a very fun recipe just for YOU…we’ll post her recipe later this week!

I hope you are all having a great week.  In the spirit of November and the upcoming holiday, Thanksgiving, I would like to add a note of THANKS….Today I am thankful for the Australian researchers for creating a diet that has been life changing for many of my clients.

What are you thankful for?  Good health, wonderful friends, a warm house, cute pets, a nice husband/wife/partner?  HOPE it’s all that and more!

    This looks like what I am looking for – the only thing I plan to change is use a can of coconut milk for the buttermilk and cheese (to make it dairy free as well, for low FODMAP.) Thanks!

      No sure if the coconut flavor would work well in the soup…perhaps try rice milk? If you don’t need to be be dairy free the lactose free milk would work well too. Also, I updated the recipe as the green part of leeks can be used now that they got the thumbs up from Monash.
