Reviews forQuick Cream of Mushroom Soup
"Great and easy recipe! I made it just like the recipe the first time. I made just two little changes the second time I cooked it -- I took half the mushrooms out and pureed the other half in the soup with my immersion blender, then returned the rest to the pot. That helped thicken the soup a lot. It also made it a little creamier when I used heavy cream instead of half and half."
"Normally I make a new recipe as written, but I had sooooo many mushrooms and onions!!! Doubled the butter, mushrooms and onion and left the remaining ingredients as is. OMStars, I love this so very much<3 ...I thought I'd have to get my immersion blender going, but nope! Perfect."
"Excellent. How would you double this soup?"
"I loved this recipe, it was perfect, although, I did add a little minced garlic. This is a keeper!"
"Definitely add some thyme to the onion./ mushroom while sauteing, stir in a bit of sherry, and then the flour before the broth.. (no flour needed if blending all in a food processor), ...no salt if using salted butter and salted chicken broth"
"Great recipe. I Almost ate the whole thing myself."
"I'm sorry, the one star is all about the flour. I am actually mad at myself as I should have known better making this recipe. The flour should have been added with the onions and mushrooms and COOKED. All I could taste in the final product was 6 T of raw flour. It ruined the soup for me and I had to dump it as did one of the other reviewers. I am surprised that your daughter in law who is a gourmet cook didn't know this but maybe something got lost in translation. I am posting this, not to be mean but to suggest that this will be a good soup if you cook that flour.Jane"
"Delicious I make and let is sit in refrigerator over night. Husband brought home mushrooms and asked for this soup"
