So full of flavor. Any recipe that starts with a triology of onions, carrots, and celery you just know will be good. And then low in fat! Just yummy! I did have left over mushrooms that I used in this recipe. It was a mix of dried and fresh(Porcini, Button, Potabella,Lobster and Shitake)Thanks for a very rich tasting soup. Don`t skip the sherry it adds a wonderful richness to the soup.
