Nutritional Information estimated at Nutritiondata.com. Data may not be accurate.

Ingredients

4 medium russet potatoes, cooked and peeled (we microwaved ours till soft), and cut in to chunks.
4 cups low sodium chicken broth (we use the Imagine brand)
4 low sodium vegetable bouillon cubes (we used the Rapunzel brand here)
1 tbsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped + extra to taste (we used an extra 2 tbsp.)
Salt to taste (yes, this will need salt. Potatoes always do.)

Directions

Place everything in your slow cooker, EXCEPT THE ADDITIONAL ROSEMARY AND SALT, and cook on low for 2-4 hours. The potatoes are already cooked, so the real purpose of cooking this is to get the bouillon cubes dissolved and to get all the flavors to meld, which a slow cooker does wonderfully. You don't want to cook this too long, as the flavor of the potatoes will change.

When you're done cooking, use a hand blender to blend everything right in the slow cooker until smooth.

You can also transfer small amounts at a time to a regular blender. But a hand blender is MUCH easier and far less messy.

Blend in the extra rosemary and some salt to taste.

Allow to cool and enjoy.

Excellent served with a piece of whole grain bread and a side of chicken breast!
