Mushroom Soup Recipe (1)

This mushroom soup boasts 2 pounds of fresh mushrooms, so if you’re a mushroom lover like myself, this soup is for you. It is so simple to make and everything is in a light cream broth so you still get some creaminess without the heaviness of many cream soups.

This recipe was shared with us by Olga P., one of the ladies in church. She had made it for the construction crew while our church was being built and the guys raved about it so of course we asked her for the recipe :).

*Note: Olga P., who shared this recipe with me, uses amushroom seasoning that she purchased at the European market. We knew that not everyone may have access to it, so we tried using Mrs. Dash seasoning instead and it was still very tasty. YOu can also sub with this Mushroom Seasoning, or this Mushroom Soup Seasoning, adding it to taste.
