    Sorry but this just did not do it for me. I found it too watery. I think it needs a hardy chicken stock and a full bodied cream. I would use more porcine or other mushrooms other than button. With a bit of tweeking this will work for me.

    Yum! This is a great soup with an intense mushroom flavor. My only problem? It doesn't make enough!! Followed the recipe excepting using chicken stock rather than vegetable. I also didn't have any light cream, so I used some heavy cream and some 2% milk... it was definitely plenty creamy! I don't have a crockpot, so I just simmered this on my stove for about 3 hours. Really lovely flavor- I couldn't resist adding a generous pinch of thyme, though. The mushroom flavor was still the star in this! We had for dinner with Harvest Bread #84786 and it was a great meal. I think that this is dinner-party worthy. BF and I ate the whole lot and are still licking our lips for more. Thanks for another winner, Sue!

    This soup was a big hit in our house. I doubled the recipe and two adults and a toddler ate the whole lot for dinner.
