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.

Hello Tracy K, I have made this soup quite often and it has always been a hit! I happen to like this on a cold evening, sitting by a fire! I usually serve it with some type of "elegant toast". Thank you for posting the recipe - it is a hit! It tastes wonderful!

This is a wonderful and easy to prepare recipe. I substitued oyster mushrooms for shiitake and added button mushrooms. It was simply delecious.
