I wanted to rate this recipe based on how I altered it (only to make is healthier) because I know I technically should be rating the recipe based on how it was written. However, here goes... this is a wonderful and easy cream of mushroom soup! It was so easy, my boyfriend did the work while I read the instructions (I was preparing other meals to go along). We followed the methodology of the recipe and substituted many ingredients. I only had crimini mushrooms so I used those instead and sauted them with about a 1/4C of diced red onion. I added 2 tbsp of whole wheat flour (fibre people!) and instead of chicken/vegetable stock (didn't want extra sodium), I used water. I know it may seem like I am not adding flavour, I did but adding salt, pepper, paprika, fresh dill, onion powder and a pinch of cinnamon. I added skim milk instead of the half and half and at first my boyfriend was skeptical, thinking I needed to add cream to make this tolerable. After his nagging, I thought I would appease him without compromising fat by adding a few spoons of 0% fat Greek yogurt. I added 7 sliced baby yukon gold potatoes (to make it heartier) and the soup thickened on it's own. It was so creamy and delicious even with all the shortcuts. This recipe is great because you can alter it to suit your needs without compromising taste or quality. Plus is was so very easy. It was honestly better than restaurant quality. My boyfriend loved it and we finished the pot for supper. Thanks for sharing!
