There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

From the EatingWell website it’s Low-Calorie Creamy Soup Recipes. Healthy Comfort Food Soups! Cream of Turkey & Wild Rice Soup, Cheddar-Ale Soup, and Cream of Mushroom & Barley Soup are just 3 of the delicious Soups you’ll find. You can find these Soups along with a huge selection of healthy and delicious recipes on the EatingWell website. http://www.eatingwell.com/

 

 

Low-Calorie Creamy Soup RecipesEatingWell2

Low-calorie recipes for pea soup, mushroom soup, potato soup and more creamy soups.
For a comforting and slimming dinner, warm up with a piping-hot bowl of one of these lightened-up creamy soup. To make our low-calorie pea soup recipes, potato soup recipes, cream of mushroom soup recipes, broccoli soup recipes and more creamy soup recipes healthier, we removed much of the butter and cream of classic versions to trim calories and fat. Enjoy a creamy bowl of one of our low-calorie soup recipes, chowder recipes or bisque recipes tonight for a healthy, filling dinner.

 

 

Cream of Turkey & Wild Rice Soup
This is a healthier twist on a classic creamy turkey and wild rice soup that hails from Minnesota. Serve with a crisp romaine salad and whole-grain bread……

 
Cheddar-Ale Soup
Our cheese- and beer-lover’s potato soup has only a fraction of the fat and sodium of a traditional recipe. We use low-fat milk and only a little oil and keep the flavor strong with zesty, sharp Cheddar cheese. Precooked diced potatoes, which you can get at many supermarkets, keep this recipe super speedy. Regular diced red potatoes also work—you’ll just need to increase the cooking time…..

 
Cream of Mushroom & Barley Soup
This sophisticated take on creamy mushroom soup is rich with earthy porcini mushrooms and has the added goodness of whole-grain barley…..
