    6 cups chicken stock or canned broth
    1/2 cup minced shallot
    1 potato, grated
    Salt and freshly grated pepper to taste
    Plain low-fat yogurt or low-fat sour cream for
    garnish

    trimmings. In a large saucepan bring stock or

    in batches until smooth,correct seasoning and

    return to saucepan. Heat until hot.
