I increased the beef broth to 4 cups and used 10 cups water, 2 bay leaves, and about 1 lb mushrooms. This soup was excellent. The cinnamon stick was a nice touch. Soup was thick and rich and we really enjoyed it. Thanks Bev for another keeper.

This was a wonderful smelling soup while simmering on the stove. We could hardly wait to give it a try. My husband and I were very impressed with the flavor and I agree with the other reviewer, the cinnamon is a nice touch. Thank you for a great recipe.

Yummy! Nutrition at it's best. My wife made me make it two weeks in a row. Even my kids loved it. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
