      I am a Mushroom Lover! I can honestly say, without hesitation, that this is the best Cream of Mushroom Soup I have ever tasted! I admit, I have never made Cream of Mushroom Soup from scratch before, but this recipe is so easy and delicious that I will be making it from scratch from now on! I did add just a tiny bit more butter, but other than that, I changed nothing! Absolutely delicious, Evie*!!

      I did this recipe for this years Christmas day dinner starter (2009) and I was really pleased with it, it was so easy to do and it was so tasty. I will do it again. Shirley Crossley, England UK.

      This soup is yummy! I prefer my soups thicker and added an extra tablespoon of flour. I still thought the soup was a little thin to my liking and ended up adding extra sour cream. Instead of separating the mushrooms, I put them all in at the beginning of cooking and then used the blender to make it all smooth, as I prefer to have totally smooth mushroom soup. I'll definitely be making this again, but will add more flour to make it extra thick!
