  • Thank You for the inspiration, and reminder of how much we love a good mushroom soup.!
    I followed your recipe, although I did find that a 1/2 cup of flour seemed to be too much thickener and so I cut it way back to just a 1/4 cup.. My instinct was dead on and the 1/4 cup was plenty.
    I stuck pretty close to the rest of the recipe, only adding more mushrooms since we love them so much.. Ohh and I took the mushrooms out of my pot after cooking them to a nice toasty brown, continued on building the soup base up, simmering it down to the right consistency and then returning the mushrooms back into the pot, that way the mushrooms didn’t get all broken up in the process of all the simmering and stirring.
    Anyways, Thank You so much for your recipe. The soup turned out amazing and it was gobbled up and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone..!!
