Nothing beats the classic mushroom soup. Mushrooms are simmered in chicken stock, then pureed and blended with single cream and sherry. Feel free to experiment with exotic mushrooms, such as shiitake or oyster mushrooms.
Made this soup on Sunday 9th November, it was delicious I added 2 cloves of garlic and a teaspoon of paprika,it is going to be one of my starters for Christmas dinner . Does any one know if it is possible to freeze it as I could make it now.and would be 1 less thing to make on Christmas Day as I am cooking for 16 people. - 14 Nov 2014
How 6 servings was made from the measurements is beyond me, however with modification, I'll make it again as it was rather tasty, I think maybe 850ml stock and 650g of mushrooms it will be much nicer, I didn't put sherry in as I'm not that fussed. It also only took me 25 mins to make, max, not 1hr 40, have I missed something out?? - 20 Oct 2013
Made this recipe today as I got a lot of mushrooms on sale at our local shop. It is the best home made mushroom soup I have made and I have tried a few. Recommend it very much. - 17 Jan 2015
