I make this with Christmas dinner every year. My Polish mother-in-law thought it was as good as the one she remembered her mother making when she was a child. Only difference is that this one is a lot easier.

Made for post-periodontal recovery. What a great soup! DH (not the post-op patient) was circling & looking hopeful every time I brought this out of the fridge to reheat. It is rich & satisfying & soft (thank you!). I added sour cream to each serving rather than mix into the soup so it wouldn't break when reheated. I also used a chicken base instead of bouillon granules but otherwise followed recipe w/o changes. Came together fast before going for afternoon surgery (kept me from thinking about upcoming procedure but wasn't a fiddly recipe _ good b/c I was distracted). This worked great for me b/c I can't handle things too warm or too cold right now. This soup is a keeper & i will make after recovered, probably trying an iteration with some dried chantrelles, morels & cepis I got stashed away. That being said, this is a lovely soup w/o other adornments, one I will be happily making again! Thank you Denise in da Kitchen for this tasty recipe!

Great soup Denise! I sauteed some fresh garlic in with the onions and mushrooms and used half and half cream, the addition of the sour cream gives this soup a wonderful tangy flavor, thanks for sharing hon my DH loved this soup!...Kitten:)
