Except for the addition of the whipping cream which is only optional there is very little fat content in this soup --- you may also make this using frozen peas and chicken broth may be used in place of vegetable broth, this makes a wonderful soup with beautiful colour, if you are a garlic lover then increase to 2 tablespoons :)

This was delicious! So simple and easy and the taste was wonderful. The only thing I left out was the cream. It tasted creamy and buttery without the cream or butter (used olive oil). Great recipe!
