I loved this soup. Great veggie soup for Meatless Mondays at our house. I did make a few changes just because...just because I don't saute in butter...I use olive oil. Secondly I substituted a cup of carrots in place of the mushrooms. I was fine without adding the cream but you sure could. Even using the cream and the butter it's only 236 calories but if you like it like I did, it cuts even more.
