      This was such an easy soup to prepare. I used a total of 1 lb. of mushrooms. I skipped the oil to fry the mushrooms in, and used a little chicken broth in its place. I also used skim milk in place of the cream. I found this to still be a great soup despite the lower fat level. Thanks for the recipe.

      I got a large package of mushrooms on the reduced produce table for next to nothing, and mushroom soup sounded like a good bet. This was one of several recipes I had saved to try. I simplified the recipe by sauteeing the mushrooms in the melted butter with the onions, then sprinkling with the flour, stirring until it was all incorporated, and then slowly adding the chicken broth - eliminated the oil and one pan. I did need to end a bit more broth along with the cream to get a soupier consistency, oh, and used 1/2 tsp of thyme instead of celery, as I had none. Mr Grumpy and I polished off the entire batch with great pleasure.

      I found a bounty of large mushrooms on sale and needed a recipe to use them up. Found this and what a winner, warm, hearty and filling with that great mushroom flavor that was not overpowered by any other spices. The only change I made to it was to adjust it for the crockpot. I first sauted the celery and onions in the butter then added everything into the crockpot and cooked on low for 4 hours. 20 minutes before serving I added the cream with an additional 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, stirred and let continue cooking on low for 15 minutes to warm up again. It was thick, creamy and lovely. DH has declared it a true winner!
