    I love soup! Having had this soup in a restaurant I couldn’t convince the chef to part with his recipe. So the hunt was on. So needless to say I was thrilled to try this on my own. This has some serious flavor issues. It needs more mushroom, onion, lemon juice, dill and parsley. I would use a red wine and beef stock to add flavor to the mushrooms. No one in the family cared for it so with leftover soup I proportioned the soup for seasoning. After all the adjustments it was so much better showing this is a great base soup but needs added flavors. So I would make this again with my own adjustments as most cooks do. Still searching for the perfect recipe though. ;)

    The first time I made this according to the directions. Tonight, I used vegetable broth (for my vegetarian daughter) and added 2 cloves of minced garlic. The garlic truly took it to the next level! This recipe will definitely be added to the rotation!

    This is a wonderful recipe. I did not change a thing. I make many soups, and this is one of the best. We had guests for dinner last night. Rave reviews on the recipe~!
