Mushroom Onion Soup Recipe

Even those who don't like mushrooms like this soup! I've found it's a great first course when I have friends over. Our home is a hobby farm with a view of Mississippi River bluffs. We have three daughters—20, 19 and 16.

"Great soup. easy to prepare and enough for two dinners for two. A good base for adding meat or fish too."

"Good soup! I used vegetable stock 'cause that's all I had on hand, and then added a very little (1 tsp?) bit of beef bouillion granules. Because of this, I left out the salt. Then, just for the heck of it, I added 1/2 c fat free Half 'n Half that I wanted to use up. It seemed to add a nice little bit of sweetness to the soup. My husband gobbled it up!"

"Made as written, adding no salt--doesn't need it. Great starter soup."
