My kids ask for this soup all the time. They are adults and ask for it when they come home from college

Followed recipe exactly & it is delicious! Made it for my in-laws & my father in-law wanted the recipe! Next time I won't dice the mushrooms, celery & carrots -- I like my soups chunkier. Definitely recommend!

This was delicious. I made a few adjustments... I didn't have cream so I used half and half instead and I only used 1.5 cups of it... Just to reduce calories. I also only had black pepper and only used 1/2 teaspoon. I also added 1 tblsp garlic while sautéing the veggies.. Turned out fab!

After reading all of the glowing reviews, I decided this would be the perfect soup to make for a cold rainy night--WRONG! It was so bad there was only one thing I could do with it and that's throw it down the disposer. Perhaps it was the amount of pepper. I thought the addition of black and white pepper was a bit much so I only added half the amount of white pepper and used just a few dashes of hot pepper sauce. When I tasted the soup, it tasted like milky pepper soup. Tried adding a few ingredients to give it more flavor but to no avail. Save your money and time and find another recipe!

We're not big soup fans in our family, but everyone LOVED this soup! My 9 year old even asked to take some to school for lunch the next day!
