About this recipe: A delicious change from your average mushroom soup. This mushroom soup is well flavoured and has the addition of quinoa. It's perfect for a first course when served with a crusty bread roll.
I had never thought of adding quinoa to soup - it adds a nice nutty flavour. I was too scared to add the treacle so I left that out! - 11 Mar 2014
A great soup for mushroom lovers! We made a few changes to make it healthier...no heavy cream, just milk, and Un-chicken broth to make it vegetarian. And no creme fraiche either. Had to use portabello instead of shiitake, but tasted fine...even used extra mushrooms. Added garlic too, and honey for molasses. Made a complete meal with salad and bread. A great way to add a new whole grain to your diet! - 12 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm an avid soup-lover, and I could eat soup all day... And this is hands-down one of the best soup recipes I've ever had! A few substitutions I made: honey for the molasses, Rapunzel Sea Salt and Herbs veggie stock for the chicken, and I was out of cream, so none of that. Mmm mmm mmm! Try it, I don't think you'll be disappointed! - 09 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
