“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!”
