This recipe came from Epicurious, however, I have modified it to our liking. If you are in a hurry you can use canned chicken broth and I've even used pre-sliced baby Bellas (Criminis)but, the Portabellas do give it a great flavor. I've even used just plain white button mushrooms when portabellas weren't available. You can use any seasoning mix of your choice to roast the mushrooms - I use Tony Chachere seasoning mix. This is a wonderful creamy and hearty soup that will impress your family as well as your dinner guests.
