REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I found a recipe I really wanted to make but it called for a can of cream of mushroom soup which I refuse to cook with because of all the sodium and preservatives. This soup was a fantastic and much healthier substitute! It is of course more work than just opening a can but if you care about food and your health it's worth it. And it freezes so I'm going to make more and freeze it in quantities the size of a typical can of soup so I always have it on hand. Thank you for such a great recipe!

This recipe is easy and delicious. It take some time to reduce it down to a creamy consistency, but the result is a wonderful earthy mushroom soup that also can be kept over.

This is a wonderful soup. I used fat free half and half for the cream and it was still great.

I wasn't so sure about this recipe when I first saw it but it was delicious. I used skim milk instead of cream and did not miss the extra calories.
