  1. Delicious! And sort of unorthodox methods. Don't be tempted to add more than the 3 tablespoons of sherry to the mushrooms and veggies - the mushrooms will make their own juices eventually. And, the shaking together of the remaining milk and flour makes a wonderful smooth soup with absolutely no lumps. Beautiful soup, onlyme!
  2. I was looking forward to this recipe because I love mushrooms and am always looking for tasty low fat/low cal recipes. I thought I hit the jackpot with this recipe. It looked good and the reviews were all positive. Following the recipe as written, I tasted it when completed and it was awful. It was bland, tasteless. The only real taste was the flour and the chowder was much too thick. I gave it one star because I was able to recover by adding about 3 more cups of sliced mushrooms that I happened to have. I also added about 1/4 cup more sherry, a couple of chicken bullion cubes, some onion powder and a cup of boiling water. It became edible, but I won't make this again.
  3. Excellent soup. The only thing I changed was not using the thyme and I added a little vegetable boullion. Very flavourful soup and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.
  4. Terrific flavor and texture. It doesn't taste low-fat at all. The parmesan sprinkle is a nice touch. I love my mushrooms so I'll make this again. Thanx for posting.
  5. This was wonderful. I cut bread into star shapes and lightly buttered each side and toasted one side under the broiler, turned them over and sprinkled some parmesan cheese on them and broiled that side til golden. I floated these on the soup just as I served it. Sprinkling more parmesan cheese over all.
