LOVED this soup- made for dinner last nt, but had to do some substitutions after I found out I didnt have any chicken broth- I did have one can of beef broth, and some chicken bouillon so I made due- Also. I got ahead of myself and DID NOT put all this in a blender- was fine with the pcs of mushrooms- No croutons on top for us- BUT still delicious- wanted to take some for my lunch today, but my husband finished it off!!!
Unfortunatly, I was unable to share this soup with anyone because I ATE IT ALL!! This was my breakfast , Lunch, and dinner. I used green onions instead of chives and made my own croutons. YUM. Opening a bottle of white to cook with was also a perk:)I will be making this again. I made this for My-3-Chefs November 2009. Thanks for sharing CarlAT!!
