loved this soup. I also chopped carrots instead of grating them

This soup is awesome. I cook for a large family so increased a couple of the ingredients. I saute' the onion, celery, carrots and mushrooms in a little butter and add meat from a whole roasted chicken, chopped. Also, increased the mushrooms and added 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. This is a winner!

Loved this soup, definitely a keeper! I followed it to a t but did not use wine. Was skeptical of the thyme as it had a different flavor and have not cooked with it before. Put it in slow cooker all afternoon and the thyme was a nice flavor at 1/4 tsp. Thank you for sharing.

This soup is awesome! Hot, hearty, and delicious, perfect for a cold winter night. I cooked up some chicken thighs and used quick-make wild rice to make the process a little faster. I doubled the spices (garlic powder, thyme, and parsley) since 1/4 a teaspoon of each didn't seem like much and used wine (I'd recommend using it instead of extra broth!) Also added a dollop of sour cream when I served it, made it even more creamy and yummy. Really tasty, highly recommend.

This soup is wonderful! I chopped the carrots instead of grating them, otherwise followed recipe exactly. I know it says you can skip the wine, but do yourself a favor and don't! It adds such an amazing flavor!

I wish I could have made this soup the way it is listed but due to picky eaters I had to leave out the mushrooms. Instead I added two cans of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken and blended it. It still turned out really good.

Delicious! reviews are spot on! I skipped mushrooms and substituted cream of chicken soup and added spinach instead of celery.
