The amounts of cream and water can be adjusted to fit your liking of texture, richness, and thickness of the soup. You may also substitute milk for cream if you feel a desperate need to be healthy. Please do try to restrain yourself though. If you put too much cream in (as I did the first time I made this) it becomes like a side dish (mashed potatoes!).
