"I got this from Allrecipes & it was submitted by Cathy T. It is by far the best mushroom soup I have EVER had. Quick, simple but so full of flavor & filling!"

Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Best mushroom soup I've ever made. Mine came out a little darker than the photo of this soup, probably because I used half portabellas. I did cook my mushrooms slightly longer, but followed everything else the same. A very filling soup, and much healhier than most cream soup recipes. I think next time I make it, I will add some garlic and see what that does for it (we are huge garlic fans in this house). Oh, and next time, I'm doubling the recipe!!"
"Well verilucky, I believe that your Husband is the lucky one. When I first test a recipe I make it as written. These folks that change sometimes better than half the original ingredients before trying it (other than someone with a dietary problem) Bug the you know what out of me. This deserves a 10. Ingredients, flavor, simplicity, etc. FANTASTIC. As some of the folks say, This IS a keeper. Thank you. Cap'n Jack"
"I also add one small carrot, minced, to the sautéing onions to give it a little sweetness. This is a very hearty soup with extremely well-balanced flavors. I serve it with rustic bread."
"We LOVED this soup. Our local gourmet market sells one for $5. a pint!!I found this recipe, and we like it even better than the markets. I agree that the dill is a must. I think that what put this over the top was the lemon juice. It added such a bright flavor. I thank you, my husband thanks you, and my wallet thanks you!!"
"This is a great soup recipe! I did add a bit of garlic but other than that I followed the recipe to the letter. A keeper in my book!"
"I love this soup. I used light butter and half 1% milk and light cream. My DH hates dill, so I replaced with thyme. So creamy and delicious on a cold winter night, a definite keeper."
"Oh how good! I made it exactly as it was, and its so good! I wonder how white wine would be, added to it? This is good, but if any of the ingredients were left out, I don't think it would be as good. Its a keeper."
"This mushroom soup was very good! I would definitely recommend for mushroom lovers. The dill really brings a great flavor to the soup. I also put maybe 1/2 a tsp of cayenne pepper in it just to give it a little bite. Made it perfect for me. You have to try this! Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"Nice dilly version of mushroom soup. I used a little dried parsley because I never buy fresh, left out the lemon juice, and just used regular margarine to cook the onions and mushrooms in. Very very good, with lots of tasty mushrooms. A whole pound of mushrooms and 2 cups of onions seem like a lot when you first start out, but they cook down to just the right amount."
"I pay $6.00 for a bowl of this soup and a slice of bread at a local restaruant. Instead I spent $6.00 on mushrooms and made a double batch of this recipe. I swear it is the same as what I buy downtown. I left out the lemon juice and fresh parsley, just cause I didn't have it. This soup was sooooo yummmy. I will never pay $6.00 a bowl for it again. Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you."
"The 1st mushroom soup I ever made & it was decliously spicy! Such a fantastic soup! I made a few tweaks which I think other people might like. First, since I had them in the refrigerator I added a container (1 oz) of dried Porcini mushrooms. I re-constituted them in hot water for about 15 mins, I then diced them and reserved the water. I then added these mushroom to the baby bella fresh mushrooms I used. Then I substituted 2 cups of chicken broth with 1 cup broth and 1 cup of the reserved mushroom water from the Porcini's, Then prior to adding the sour cream, I used an immersion blender. Just enough to break things up, but not enough to make it completely smooth. The result is a darker soup, but oh soooo delicious! Enjoy!"
"This was very good! I think that the mushrooms need to be cooked a little longer before adding the broth, mine were a bit rubbery and I prefer them a little softer. Otherwise, great flavor and I love the dill/paprika together."
"I made a batch of this last night with no changes (very unusual for me). I used a lb of crimini mushrooms and I thought that the ratio of liquid to mushroom was way off. I would use about 10oz next time, and make sure the mushroom is fully softened before adding the broth. I recently had a bowl of Hungarian mushroom soup at a restaurant and was trying to recreate that taste at home. I'd have to say it was a bit bland and there was something lacking flavor-wise in this soup. I'll have to experiment some to get it right. Thanks for a good recipe, Verelucky!"
"Oh my goodness is this an awesome soup! I used crimini mushrooms and made just two small changes - lime juice instead of lemon (what I had on hand) and because paprika is my favorite spice, I used an extra 1/2 tsp (for half a recipe). Also used skim milk and light sour cream with no problems. Thank you so much for the recipe Verelucky!"
"This is a great mushroom soup - very flavorful and easy to make. I used portabella mushrooms and I substituted non-fat Greek strained yogurt for the sour cream. I also reduced the salt to 1/2 teaspoon. Thanks for sharing this."
"What a lovely soup. Rich tasting with tons of flavor. I love dill so this was just perfect."
"I liked, but not loved this recipe. I think the dill was too much and I only used 1 tsp and I'm not sure I liked the lemon either. But my 19 mo son loved it and he is a very picky eater hence the 4 stars. LOL"
"I was going to submit this one myself because it is one of my all-time favoritie soups to make.Very easy and tastes so good(especially when dunking some crusty bread into it!!!)"
