Merhaba Nese,
Kullandigim belli bir marka yok. Kullanacagim miktara gore hangisi en tazesi ise onu aliyorum. Yag oranina gelince, o da ayni sekilde bazen light bazen half&half:)

Tabi half&half krema kullanabilirsin:) Genel olarak kremanin yag orani, yaptigim yemegin lezzetini etkilemiyorsa kullanmak istediginiz orani sizlere birakiyorum. Eger lezzetini, kivamini etkiliyorsa muhakkak krema oranini belirtiyorum:)
Simdiden ellerine saglik:)

Hello Binnur,
I served this soup along with your black olive bread after a long walk in the countryside on a chill day and it was the best lunch ever, so warming and full of flavour! Thank you so much for your lovely recipes! I use them often, but never seem to find a minute to say how much my family appreciates your effort! Cheers!

Hi. Love very one of your recipes that I've tried. I was wondering how I could make this soup with fresh fomatoes vs. canned? Thanks

Thank you Beverly:) I've posted this recipe in December that's why I decided to use the canned ones to give the nice color to the soup:) Just replace the 1 2/3 cups canned diced tomatoes with the fresh diced tomatoes. If you like, add just one or two spoons of canned puree tomatoes to give the colour:)
