Cream of Mushroom Soup

Lillian Patterson


Almost as easy as opening a can and sooooo much better! This is the perfect creamy soup to serve on a cold day. Absolutely delicious, this is one of my go-to recipes when I want something easy, warm, and filling. You can use the base to make just about any cream soup. Recipe can be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable broth for the beef broth.
