I had my sister bring me some shiitake mushrooms from Chicago this weekend. I've never used them before. This was the recipe we picked since we had all the other mushrooms. I wish we had fresh thyme, I'm sure I would have given this one more star if we had. I scraped out the gills from the portabello, just my preference. I was elected mushroom washer. So with damp cloth in hand I cleaned them and my daughter Amanda put the rest of the soup together. Oh yes, the boys made bread (boxed, just add beer). So we had a fun Sunday night of cooking together.The broth has a very rich flavor even though we used 2% milk. One bowl of soup really fills you up. Thanks for sharing.
