I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and added some additional ingredients. I tried to keep in mind the fat content. It's easy and I usually cook it in a crock pot. I have also used dried basil in place of fresh basil. I puree this soup using a hand held blender. Using this appliance, it maintains a chunky consistency. I would be interested in other ways to improve this recipe, as I have difficulty getting the basil flavor to stand out.
