Loaded Potato Soup - 4 points

The original post of this recipe seems to have been lost when Blogger went nuts a few days ago. It is so good that I hate to have it excluded from my blog, so I am putting it up again. Everytime I look at it three words circle through my head: potato, bacon, creamy. Those are good words.

Loaded Potato Soup - 4 points
6 cups shredded potatoes
12 slices bacon, chopped and fried
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup flour
1 chicken bouillon cube
2/3 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
6 cups fat free milk
1 cup green onions, chopped
1 1/4 cup fat free cheese
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup broccoli
1 cup carrots, chopped
1. Place potatoes on a large saucpan over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook for 9 minutes.
2. Turn potatoes, cover and continue to cook for 8 minutes. Set aside.
3. In a large pot over medium low heat, combine oil and flour to make a roux. Cook, stirring constantly, for three minutes.
4. Add bouillon, milk, salt, and pepper to pot. Cook over medium heat until milk begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
5. Steam broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower in a microwave steamer or stovetop steamer until tender. Mash with a potato masher if you desire a chunky texture or puree in a food processor for a creamier texture. 
6. Add all vegetables, bacon, and cheese to the milk base in the pot. Simmer until heated through. 
7. Yields 20, 4 point servings (approximately 1 cup per serving)
