The big fresh-mushroom flavor of this soup sets it apart from other recipes I've tried. After preparing this family favorite for guests, I frequently get recipe requests. -Elsie Cathrea, Elmira, Ontario

"Very nice and simple. I usually don't mess with the recipe the first time, but I used skim milk, added garlic and reduced the oil to lower the calories. Nice flavor"

"I did not have celery but followed the recipe otherwise. I did double it and it served 4 adults with no leftovers. I have made this twice and both times it was fantastic. This soup was perfect on a cold snowy Colorado night!"
