While the chef is correct, substitutions will take away from the quality of the soup, let's just go ahead and admit that 45 grams of fat in one serving of soup is excessive. Of course a splurge here and there won't hurt! BUT...for those of us who are always battling a bulge, or like me (pregnant and craving creamy tomato basil soup), substituting fat free half and half and adding a quarter cup of sugar works. As a matter of fact, it's pretty spectacular. (I kept the butter). No, not as rich and tasty as the real thing, but my arteries and butt are thanking me for concocting a heart friendlier version that I would gladly serve to friends and family.
