Lightened-Up Potato Soup



I love this soup because it light but have the full favor of cream based soup. Most soups rely on heavy cream for the velvety texture. I found out that swappping lowfat buttermilk you get the same effects.. Plus its quick and easy.. This recipes was from Shape magazine..
