      This soup was delicious. i only made a couple changes. I used one can of beef broth, one can of chicken broth and 2 cans of vegetable broth. I also used salted butter since thats what i had on hand. I sliced some shitake and baby portebellos too to add to the mix, they were a delicious addition. I am giving it 5 stars and would give it more if i could because it was my 11 and 7 year old that ate ALL of the soup! I had a bowl before i napped before my 3rd shift job, and when i awoke, looking forward to bringing a bowl to work with me, it was GONE!! DH told me that they each had 2 helpings for dinner, and the kids begged for more later till they finished it! Needless to say, im on my way to the store after writing this review, to get some more mushrooms to make a double recipe for tonights dinner :) oh, let me add that i also left out the potato

      This is one of those soups that shouldn't be served until the next day, IMO. It was ok the first day but I had my doubts about making it again because it takes so long to cut up all the vegs. But I decided it was all well worth it when I had a bowl the next day. Yum! I did add about 1/4 cup of cream to it.

      This is a very soul-soothing delicious soup. We are just starting to get bitter cold weather here and I am so glad I had this soup to enjoy. I used a combo of baby bellas and button mushrooms. I made no alterations and the flavor and smell were excellent. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Will make again.
