I’ve made this recipe with vegetable soup and without butter, and it turned very very good!!! Delicious 🤤. I will do it again tomorrow 😄

I also made it with chicken stock, white wine, thyme, yellow onions and used only cremini mushrooms and 10% cream and it still turned out tasty. Very smooth and creamy. I like a recipe that can be as versatile as this one is, using ingredients you already have on-hand. This one is a keeper in my rota of soup recipes.

Excellent recipe, soup is incredibly tasty and so easy to make !!! I substituted terrago for fresh thymian and it turned out amazing !!

This soup is a winner. Savory and creamy, everyone loves it when I make it. It’s easy enough to make for a fast and simple weeknight meal, yet elegant and tasty enough for a multi-course dinner party. Perfect as is.

yummy! i did too much oil, fixed it with some flour

Easy and delicious. I only used cremini mushrooms. Ran out of shallots, so I used a regular yellow onion and substituted thyme for tarragon. Will make it again!

Pretty good! Used regular onion, not shallots with thyme & basil instead of tarragon.... sprinkled parmesan flakes on top and served... bowls emptied :)

This soup is quite good but seems to need a tiny bit of something to take it over the top. Did have to use dried shiitakes and used the rehydrating liquid to add to the soup
