Reviews for Cream of Basil Soup
"I made this soup after receiving an abundance of fresh basil from a friend. I didn't have the exact ingredients the recipe called for. Mine could be called a lighter version. I used unsalted butter, 1% milk and light sour cream. It still turned out fabulous! I would def make this again."
"This made a perfect match served with a tomato basil grilled cheese. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this soup."
