WOW! If you haven't tried this simple recipe then it's time you do. So easy to make and the flavor is amazing! The recipe itself is great,but like a couple of other reviewers I added a little bit of garlic powder and a splash of olive oil. Thank you for sharing Anne!

I just made this for the second time in a week. OMG it is great and EASY. I saw asparagus on sale and thought ??? Again OMG. I also made a double batch. My husband doesn’t eat mushrooms but my best friend does and we are glad not to share with more.

I was a little worried after taste tasting after I added the flour. It really tasted like flour. Didn't give up, It did say to simmer to let the flavors meld. Glad I did. It was really tasty! May add some portobellos and a titch of sherry next time. Low calories for a creamy soup. Added benefit. Thanks Anne and other cooks who gave me the thumbs up to try it!

Love this soup. I have doubled or tripled the mushrooms, added sausage or chopped chicken and used heavy cream. I make it at least twice to three times a month.

I have made this upwards of 20 times for my family. If they see mushrooms on sale they beg me to make this soup. I should note that my says doesnt like mushrooms and my wife doesnt like mushroom soup. They both still ask me to make this every other week.

This soup is absolutely delicious! Fir some reason I always thought mushroom soup was hard to make...well I couldn't have been more wrong. Simple and the results are CROWD PLEASING! I made it for a potluck and x4'd the recipie. I also substituted corn starch for the flour..used less and my gluten free friends were also able to enjoy.

I just made this soup - love it ! First time making a creamed soup - but it was easy - I did cheat a little - used table cream and more than called for as I wanted to use it up before Christmas.. Will definitely make this again.
