Artichoke Soup

Artichoke Soup

A few cans thrown in the food processor makes a wonderful creamy creation.

This can be served at room temperature. Artichokes are high in Vitamin C, folacin, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Artichokes offer a health protective substance called silymarin, which may play a role in cancer prevention.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.


  • 3 (14-ounce) cans artichoke hearts, drained
  • 3 (10 3/4-ounce) cans fat-free cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 2 cups canned fat-free chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine, optional


Place artichokes in a food processor and purée. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and add to processor. Blend until well combined. Transfer to a pot and heat over low heat to serve.
