We have a regular Monday night get together for dinner with friends. I try to make a different soup as a starter every week. Sometimes I follow a recipe & others I just sort of throw whatever appeals in the pot. This was last nights soup & it was one of the throw things together. We all agreed that this is a make again soup. I made this in a 1.5 litre slowcooker. It will serve 8 as a starter, 4 as a main course. I used a combination of portabello & white mushrooms, as that is what I had in the fridge. You could add some cooked diced chicken during the last hour of cooking if you wanted to.
