Wonderful!!! Subbed beef broth for chicken, used only 3/4 c water and 2 c whole milk instead of 1/2&1/2. Added garlic w/ onions because . . . well, I add it to everything except oatmeal. Since I used whole milk instead of half & half I'll add a little more flour next time to thicken it a bit more. Lots of flavor and perfect for a blustery Northwest day!
mmmmmm.....yummy. first time to taste fresh mushroom soup. this was very good and so easy to make. will make this again and again, good comfort food. dh and i enjoyed this with a nice chef salad. thanks paulcm for posting this recipe!!! UPDATE: 1/14/10 Still using this recipe. Cooked it tonight and enjoyed with a grilled cheddar cheese sandwich. This soup is so flavorful, not to thick or rich, simply delicious.
I made this as part of our traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner and it was quite a hit. I had a couple of recipes I was going to try but they were a bit labor intensive and I was running out of time. This was quick and easy and very delicious. My husband and father-in-law raved about this soup. Even non mushroom lovers gave this a thumbs up.
I used half button and half baby bella mushrooms and 2 cans of chicken broth instead of condensed broth and water. This will be the soup I serve every Christmas Eve. Thanks for posting!
I printed this out months ago but just used it tonight and what a treat it was. I substituted beef broth for the chicken and it tasted just like Souplantation's soup! It was warmly received by all my family who ate it. Thanks
I made this using twice the ammount of mushrooms (a variety!), and vegetable broth to make it vegetarian.Carmelizing the onions before adding the shrooms gave it a wonderful color (as did adding some paprika) and flavor. I will make this again and again.
Thank you so much for this recipe! My kids are on the Feingold Diet, which eliminates artificial flavors and colors and three petroleum based preservatives. We have not liked any of the "approved" mushroom soup brands. I really wanted some green bean casserole last night and this worked perfectly!! I will note that I used 2 cups of homemade chicken broth instead of the condensed soup and water. I will next time either add more flour or cut it down to 1-1/2 cups as it was a little thin for the casserole. The taste, however, was heavenly! I think it would be awesome as a soup made from portebellas, though I have never eaten cream of mushroom soup in anything except a casserole! Thank you again so so much!!!
Very good soup. I did add a dash of nutmeg and some thyme to give the soup much more depth. It was very delicious. Also, it was perfectly fine with just plain milk substituting the half and half.
Fantastic!! I also diced some baby carrots, and celery. Was awesome!!!
This was so creamy and good. My whole family loved it, even my seven year old who doesn't like mushrooms said it was yummy. I also added some enoki mushrooms to the button mushrooms because I had some that needed to be used. It was really wonderful. Thanks for a great recipe.
This soup was so good and super easy to make. I wished I had doubled the recipe!!
