Although this recipe is easy to make, it has a great, complex taste-and it's low carb too. My family loves it, and I hope you do too.

Tasty soup on a cold day. I really enjoyed this recipe especially since it was low carb. It's hard to find low carb recipes and this one fit the bill. I made the recipe exactly as it called for, I was please with the results however I don't believe the number of servings is marked appropriately. This made no more then 4.5 cups and with a cup per person...it doesn't equate to the 6 servings this recipe is posted. Please make note of the portions and plan accordingly. Thank you very much for teh recipe, I will definately be making this again and will be sharing this with others.

Very good soup. I doubled the recipe (mushrooms were on sale) and used 2% milk with just a little half and half since that is what I had on hand. When I sauteed the mushrooms, I went a little longer than five minutes, I sauteed them until they were squeaky and released their water. I admittedly used a low quality paprika, the bottom shelf stuff, and I was worried about that, but the soup is still delish. I also added a generous amount of cayenne, to compensate for the low quality of the paprika, and to add some heat. I made the chicken broth with Better than Boullion paste. My soup is a bit thinner than it would be if I had used heavy cream, but the flavors are still yummy.

Very rich, delicious soup! We wanted a vegetable and some meat so I added some zucchini and Italian sausage. Because of the additions I added another cup of chicken broth and a little extra on some of the other ingredients. Wonderful treat on a low carb diet.
