"This soup was amazing! I love mushrooms, my family does not so this is the perfect proportion for just one person for two separate meals. Made it exactly as the recipe called for and plan to make it again. So glad I don't have to share. :)"

"I love this soup, but to make it a little more substantial, I gradually add mashed potato flakes at the end of the cooking process until the soup is as thick as I like it."
