SOUPS - Fall is the time for Soup

CREAM OF LETTUCE SOUP. Simple and classic.
      3     cans of chicken broth
      1     potato, peeled, diced
      1     head of Romaine lettuce broken up
      3 T.  butter ( this is your only fat)
Cook together until tender. Approx. 25 minutes.

Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk (Or cream if you are skinny)

Cool soup and puree it in a blender.

Salt and pepper to taste. I used none. The broth has enough salt.

Stir and reheat to serve. Do not boil again.

VARIATIONS: Replace the lettuce with another vegetable.
This is a great basic soup which will impress your friends.
