Reviews for Creamy Garlic & Mushroom Soup
"I have made this now twice. It is delicious. My husband has even requested this soup. Instead of the cream I use low fat half&half and I use beef broth since my husband does not like chicken. Delicious even with these changes."
"Thank you, Mandy for a delicious recipe. As I said on FB, I used whey left from making homemade ricotta, and instead of heavy cream, I used Greek yogurt. I used chicken boullion to flavor the whey. We absolutely loved the mixed mushrooms and the garlic mellowed into a pleasing taste. I did add some spinach and cooked chicken to make it more hearty. It is definitely a keeper!"
