Great Soup!!!! I made this on the stove top and it was really tasty!!I did have to add a little more water to the soup as it simmered,and I also added a few splashes of tamari for a little depth of flavor.This will be made often at my house!!Thank You Sharon123!

Very tasty! We didn't add the cream of mushroom soup, but used some extra mushrooms and a little almond milk to make it creamy. We also didn't make this in the crock pot. Instead, we made it on the stove top so we could enjoy it sooner. It was great with some crispy french bread!

Excellent! Even my husband who hates soup (calls soup 'too wet' and it 'has too many ingredients mixed together') loved it. If this recipe can make my husband go back for seconds, then it is definitely a winner! Super easy and super cheap to make! We served it in bread bowls with a little bit of provolone cheese melted on top, and it was restaurant quality!
