    6 ounces light wheat bread (I used light wheathotdog buns) - about 3.5 buns
    2 tablespoons whipped butter*
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 1/2 pounds white mushrooms, coarsely chopped
    2 portobello mushrooms—stems discarded, black gills reserved for garnish, caps coarsely chopped
    2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    Salt and freshly ground white pepper
    6 cups low sodium vegetable broth
    3/4 cup fat free half & half


1.Preheat the oven to 300°. Bake the bread slices on a baking sheet for about 1 hour, until deeply browned.

2.In a pot, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms and the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over moderate heat, until the mushrooms are softened, 5 minutes. Add the broth and the cream; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until the mushrooms are tender, 10 minutes.

3. Add the toasted bread to the soup; simmer until softened, 5 minutes. Working in batches, puree the soup in a food processor. Return the soup to the pot, season with salt and pepper and keep warm.

4. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with the portobello gills and serve.
