Chunky Mushroom Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Parsley

This is my absolute favorite mushroom soup! I came up with this recipe after reading a similar recipe in a magazine....I added more stuff...especially mushrooms! there's NO pureeing, so it's really chunky. You can use virtually any combo of mushrooms, but the button and baby bellas have been my favorite so far. Prep time includes chopping all ingredients plus cooking and stirring.

I really enjoy a good mushroom soup! I thought that the addition of the shredded carrots made this soup different from other mushroom soups. I admit to cutting way back on the butter....I am wathing my cholesterol. I also had to skip the tarragon, because that is one herb that I never have on hand.
