Adding More Stock and Less Cream with a Lower Fat Content

Tip of the Day:

The tip today concerns altering recipes to lower the fat content. The Potage St. Germain or French Pea Soup recipes that I’m publishing today use heavy or whipping cream…. It’s a wonderful flavor… very rich and creamy… I look at it as a trade off…. I don’t eat it often but when I do… I make it this way… however… not everyone feels that way.

You can cut the fat by using light cream and less of it…. thin the soup with some of the reserved pea-chicken broth instead… remember any of the unused reserved pea-chicken broth you have left will freeze well and can be a great addition to gravies and stews… see my previous Tip of the Day about saving liquids from cooked vegetables.
