Homemade Mushroom Soup for Two

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by gailanng

A lovely creamy-mushroomy soup for two. A dash of dry sherry or truffle oil maybe added. Should you like additional mushrooms and a thicker consistency, those may be added. Don't rinse your mushrooms, just wipe them with a damp cloth. With great reviews from: http://blog.seasonwithspice.com/2011/12/cream-of-mushroom-soup-recipe.html.

Yummy...Yummy...Yummy! Made this for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game and this is another wonderful recipe from Gailanng. I did add some minced onion and celery with the garlic while it was sauteeing but otherwise followed the instructions. Definately a keeper and going into my Favorites of 2013.
