    Amazing, hearty and sooo much umami! I sautéed few cloves of garlic with the onion, skipped the roux, added tons of vegan broth, boiled crushed dry mushrooms with mrs. dash seasoning and some egg noodles. Topped with Parmesan for more umami boost. Took 10 mins but will use this recipe for life. My go to comfort food.

    I give this a five for the idea. I wanted to make mushroom soup and only had dried mushrooms. I had chicken stock on hand, so I boiled the dried (shiitake) mushrooms, celery and minced onion in the broth for about ten minutes. I added salt, pepper, a little ground thyme and cayenne and a splash of red wine vinegar. Then I put it in my vitamix and pureed the batch. This step let me skip the flour. I poured it all back into the pan, added about 1/2 cup of heavy cream and voila! Yummy mushroom soup!

    French Tart is right....this is a delicious soup and very easy to make. I did make some changes. I used cooked barley, sauteed garlic, 1 % milk and a dash of Kitchen Bouquet for colour and extra flavour. It was very filling and excellent the next day as well.

    DELICIOUS! I made this with French dried ceps and this was rich and intense. I used full fat fresh milk in place of the canned milk and I also added 1 clove of French garlic for a little extra flavour. I cannot believe that this recipe has NEVER been reviewed yet - what a pity! Made for the soup, sandwich, salad and starter Photo Tag event in the photos forum. Thanks Dancer! FT:-)
