    Going to try this as a vegan blender soup- no butter, substitute vegetable broth for chicken and soy milk for half and half and whirl everything up cold. - 8/8/10

  • Yes, delicious! I used fat-free half and half and it was still terrific. But I have a question regarding serving size. The recipe measured out at 5 cups, but is supposed to serve 6. Shouldn't that make it 5 servings? I mean really, what is the actual serving size? - 8/20/14
