"I'm posting this in honor of one of my best friends mom's who first served this to me during high school...my second Jewish mother who always thought I should eat more. She used the Moosewood cookbook for many a fine dinner. Thanks Eileen!"

"I have made this soup for years but i add beef broth and a little more sherry or white wine and 1/2 cup of heavy cream. My family loves it. "
"Sorry to say- that although it was very easy to prepare and has a lot of potential, I found this soup to be very bland. I added alot of salt, pepper, and some garlic powder. The sherry lends a nice flavour a great fragrance so try not to leave it out. With added seasonings, this is a nice and easy soup. Thanks.."
"This soup is delicious. I made it with mushroom stock, and added celery and thyme based on other reviews. I also added some thinly sliced swiss chard at the end. It is so flavorful, I will make this again and again. Thanks for posting."
"I have made this recipe dozens of times and sometimes in really huge batches. To perk up the flavor - make a finely chopped mixture of Italian parsley, season with lemon juice, sea salt & some really good olive oil. Garnish the soup with this & have guests stir it in."
"Delicious! Doubled the recipe using beef/chicken/veg stock. Also used reviewer's suggestion using 3 different mushrooms and added the celery, thyme and cream. Perfect for the -4 degree weather here in CT"
"Excellent... my daughter and I both enjoyed it. I followed the recipe exactly using veggie stock b/c DD is vegetarian but, next time, I think I'll try beef stock. I used 1/3 baby bellas, 1/3 shitake, and 1/3 white button mushrooms. This is definitely a repeat recipe!"
"Excellent! I used olive oil in place of butter, 1/2 shitake and 1/2 crimini mushrooms, and added 1 bunch of spinach. I will certainly make this again."
"YUM!!! I made this last night. I used half broth and half water, added 1 stalk of celery, diced, and added about 1 teaspoon of dried thyme. It would have been a bit bland for me otherwise. I had pre-cooked barley in the freezer so I used that and the soup came together in no time. It was more like 4 servings, not 6. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing. :)"
"Sorry we found this very bland"
"Have made this soup for years. Use a mic of shrooms and add carrot and celery. Family loves it-always delic!"
"My family just loves the soup. I have made it for years and even when the kids were little they loved it. I never use broth - just water. Paired with a salad or sandwiches it is a great dinner."
"This soup rocks!!!!!!!"
"Easy and yummy too! I made half a recipe and it was just right! Much enjoyed with a few Ritz crackers. Thanks! Made for the IRON CHEF game."
