      This was excellent! It didn't specify what kind of mushrooms to use, so I used some portabellas that I had on hand, and I think it worked out really well. The gruyere and portabellas gave it such a smoky, earthy quality that made it really good with the creamy texture of the soup and zest from the leeks. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Azparzych. Made for ZWT7, Mischief Makers.

      Wow! What a beautiful, tasty soup! I followed instructions except for subbing half and half instead of whipping cream, and I wasn't sure what herbs to use for the fines herbs, so I used a pinch of each dried tarragon, savory, parsley. I also used my immersion blender right in the pot - easy peasy! Made for ZWT Count Dracula and his Hot Bites

      This was a very tasty and satisfying soup! I had some fresh leeks from the garden, which went so well with the mushrooms and cheese. Rather than processing the soup in batches, I used my immersion blender to blend the soup in the pot. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. A nice multi-grain baguette completed this delicious meal. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7 by a fellow Hot Pink Lady.
