The low-fat cooking cream makes the potato cream soup super-creamy and yet not too rich in calories. The turkey bacon is more figure-friendly if prepared correctly. With a piece of wholemeal baguette in addition, it makes a vitamin-rich, low-calorie, complete main meal. Low-carb fans enjoy the potato cream soup without baguette.

The potato cream soup will be a bit stronger and more hearty if you puree the somewhat harsher, smooth winter endive instead of the curly frisée leaves and sprinkle the bacon in small pieces over it at the end.

The soup can also be cooked and frozen very easily. Leave out the turkey bacon and roast it fresh when you defrost the soup.
