Absolutely wonderful! Just delicious! My only complaint was that it is VERY thin, and I prefer something thicker. I added 1 T. of non-cornstarch thickener to it--helped a bit, but it was still very, very thin. Also, I added a small dollop of sesame oil to the mix instead of bothering with the sesame seeds. YUM YUM!

This tastes amazing - It was thin, but adding any sort of 'thickener' would increase the carbs, which isn't worth it if you're an avid low-carber.

I agree absolutely wonderful. I prefer my soups thin and this flavor was right up my alley. I was already a big fresh mushroom fan. I calculated the whole pot of soup to have 14.1g carbs. Great for us Atkins.
