A very tasty recipe that is flexible as well. We used chopped up portabella mushrooms, fresh thyme from the garden, and homemade chicken stock. Out of habit I threw in a dash of cayenne and also we skimmed cream from the top of our milk as that was what was on hand. I wasn't looking very well at the directions and threw the carrots and celery in with the onion. Perhaps this is why my cooking time seemed to be less than stated. Start to finish we had this soup in an hour's time.
I just made this when I saw it in Family Fun. It is excellent! I did not have thyme so I used basil and I used half heavy cream and half milk as I did not have light cream- REally Delicious!!!!
