    I don't know how this recipe can be posted with the claim that it serves six. Think about it: Two cups stock and one cup cream equals only three cups. I'd say it serves two as a main course and perhaps four if served preceding a meal. I made this, with some changes, and it was delicious. I added some finely diced celery and some parsley to the mushroom/onion/garlic mixture. I also substituted vegetable stock for the chicken stock, and used half & half. I used some black pepper but mostly white pepper. Lastly, I added a splash of white wine, which made the whole thing really yummy. I had trouble getting it to thicken properly, so I ended up adding another tablespoon of flour (first mixed into warm water.) That seemed to do the trick, as I wanted it fairly thick before I added the wine which I knew would thin it ou.

    Super easy and quick. This took a lot less time than I thought it would and turned out to be delicious. The only thing I omitted was the garlic, but only because I was out and didn't realize it. I will absolutely make this again, but will add the garlic and cook the mushrooms more (I didn't cook them enough).

    This was so delicious and incredibly easy and fast! Highly recommended. I blitz the soup a bit at the end with a hand blender.

    Just a SCANT 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg or it will overpower the soup.

    I doubled the recipe. Since I used salted butter I didn't add salt. I did add a half teaspoon of thyme. This is an Amazing recipe. Absolutely delicious easy and fast. Love it. Used broth of chicken. I substituted garlic and onion powder. I added black pepper. Turned out amazing. Thanks
