My daughter and husband love this wonderful rich soup on a fall evening, true comfort food. You can easily double it and freeze to take out to use with anything that requires Cream of Mushroom Soup. I first had this at a local restaurant and had never just had it as a soup but only used it for cooking with, was surprised at how wonderful it was and have loved it ever since. You can mix up the mushrooms and add all different types to it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
