About this recipe: This creamy soup is packed with fresh mushrooms and can be whipped up in less than half an hour. The amounts listed will make enough soup for a crowd but you could halve or quarter the recipe and it'll still taste delicious!
I am obsessed with this soup! I made it at my restaurant and people went nutso for it! Simple ingredients turned into something magnificent. Unless you are feeding a hungry restaurant crowd, I would suggest scaling the recipe back because it makes a large quanirity as written. - 08 Jan 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Used AR's "change servings" feature and scaled this down to 4 servings. Was a little shy on the milk, so I added a bit of heavy cream (maybe 1/4 cup) I had left in the fridge. Used baby bella mushrooms (1 lb), and added a little more flour to reach the mushroom soup consistency I like. I gave the soup a pretty good grind of fresh nutmeg. Although it's a subtle background flavor, I think it's essential and sets this recipe apart from others. This soup is mellow but still rich and has that earthiness that I so love in a good mushroom soup. Not only is this easy to prepare, it's DELICIOUS, and I wouldn't change a thing. Going into my Favorites folder. - 21 Apr 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Good job Joe! This was great stuff that Hubs and I thoroughly enjoyed! I added minced garlic to the mushroom onion mix tho’ I’m not sure I’d say it was a critical addition. Only because the milk I used was reduced-fat, I compensated by using equal parts half-and-half and milk to give it a little more richness. Loved the hint of nutmeg– it was a distinct but subtle touch. Mainly because I had them to use, I threw in some fresh chives along with the parsley – I liked the little bite of flavor they added. Had I not added the chives or the garlic, however, I doubt I would have enjoyed this any less. - 23 May 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
