This soup is so easy. I used regular sherry as I didn't have cream sherry. I had baby bellas and white button mushrooms. I used my immersion blender before I added the cheese. I may use Mushroom broth the next time. I served it with a green salad and crusty sourdough bread. It was absolutely delicious! Wish I could add the picture I posted on Facebook!

I've made many versions of this delicious soup! I also used baby Bella's and crimini mushrooms! The one important factor to me is a creamy soup! I used my quick prep hand blender! Served in toasted bread bowls! Yummy

This soup was wonderful, not too rich but full of flavor. I used oyster, baby Bella and shiitake mushrooms. Will definitely make again. My husband agreed that it was high end restaurant quality and easy to make.
