      I have made this soup for years but i add beef broth and a little more sherry or white wine and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. My family loves it.

      Sorry to say- that although it was very easy to prepare and has a lot of potential, I found this soup to be very bland. I added alot of salt, pepper, and some garlic powder. The sherry lends a nice flavour a great fragrance so try not to leave it out. With added seasonings, this is a nice and easy soup. Thanks..

      This soup is delicious. I made it with mushroom stock, and added celery and thyme based on other reviews. I also added some thinly sliced swiss chard at the end. It is so flavorful, I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting.
