La Madeleine Tomato Basil Soup

(Lighter option)

La Madeleine tomato basil soup is the delicious old fashioned tomato soup from the famous French restaurant “La Madeleine”. The original recipe cream of tomato soup from La Madeleine contained full fat cream and ¼ pound of unsalted butter; we've replaced it with half fat cream and 1 pat (1” sq, 1/3” high) of butter - making it a lighter option. Have it as a treat and part of your balanced diet and exercise program. There are 90 calories in one serving and 9g of net carbs.
