I love cream of mushroom soup, especially baby bella or portabella mushroom soup. Of course the heavy cream tastes fantastic but I wanted to cut down on the fat so I used half-n-half. FYI, heavy cream is typically 38% fat and half-n-half is 12% fat. Quite a reduction in fat and still have the wonderfull creaminess of the soup. I hope that you give this recipe a try sometime, it is really creamy and delicious.
