From the best soupmaker there is. I found this online and made it the next day. It was a big hit!! Next time I'll double the recipe! I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on top.

I made this recipe using a mixture of cultivated mushrooms (cremini, shitake, oyster) and regular white button mushrooms. It was wonderful. I think the lemon juice and the bay leaf really add another dimension to the flavor. I am glad that I did not look at the nutritional info before I made it. I might not have even tried it. You could cut down on the fat by substituting half-n-half for the heavy cream, but I think it would compromise the taste. I might try it, however.

I will have to at least double this next time I make it. There was none left when we were done. Very simple to prepare and the ingredients are easy to find.

Wow - really delicious. I used Portabello mushrooms and used skim milk instead of the cream (trying to loose a few lbs.) and it was still delicious. Will definitely make again & again. Thanks for posting!
