    SusieQusie's Note:

    Creamy soups are a weakness of mine - all that smooth, fatty goodness ... This tweaky Heart Smart® recipe gives my soul what it needs yet gives my heart a break, pun intended ;-). But wait! That's not all - act now- a hidden bonus to this recipe - you get to hone your knife skills while chopping the vegetables! Who-yah! What an aerobic workout!

      Made this today to take for lunch next week. Didn't have bouillon granules, so I used 5 cubes of bouillon, otherwise followed this recipe to a T. Very good! I didn't think there was a way to make a creamy, delicious soup without a ton of fat and calories, but you and HeartSmart found a way. Thanks Susie!
