  • To give a Mediterranean twist, add 1 pound scallops or cut up firm white fish.
  • To cut saturated fat, puree 1 can low sodium corn with 1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat milk until creamy. Substitute for cream. 
  • To cut sodium, prepare with low sodium broth. To cut sodium further, substitute water for half of the broth.
