This is the must-try mushroom soup that you can find at Joey's Restaurants up here in the Northwest. It's my all-time favorite mushroom soup, and I think that is because of the sherry that is added. When I saw a note in their menu that this recipe was featured in a magazine a couple of years ago, I had to find it. Enjoy!

This is the best mushroom soup recipe ever. It was simple to make and is full of flavour. We were at Joey's for lunch on the weekend and I needed a new favorite from their menu because I can make the soup so easily at home!
