    Great taste but way too thin. It was watery and expected a little more richness because of the cream. Keeping in mind that I tripled the recipe for 12 people. Struggled to find a way to make it a thicker consistency. I had to add way more mushrooms (triple) and added more flour to the the soup. Was worried it would taste floury. Would try another recipe in future for comparison.

    Very good but, I needed to use a little more flour to thicken it more.

    Turned out great. I used white button and shitake mushrooms. Added a slash of red wine instead of white. I doubled the flour since some reviews said the soup was very didn't thicken. After doing this you would need 4 cups of the stock and I used just over 1 cup of 1% milk instead of cream or half & half. Flavour was great and still tasted like a rich soup. Will be going into my regular recipe rotation.

    It was really good, my daughter love it I’ve made it several times now. Don’t skip the buttered crackers, they make it better!

    I had 28 ounces of mushrooms, used better than bouillon mushroom Flavor with 4 cups of water. Used small amount of ham. Didn't thicken up enough for me so added 1 can cream of mushroom soup. Extra flavor 😎. Did add a splash of sherry too with mushrooms and cooked down. Still needed to thicken some more so made a slurry, brought it to a boil and simmered. Added cream at last and we had a very good soup. I know I cheated, but a respectable soup.

    Really flavourful! For me it turned out 6 servings. Could have been more if I had done 4 cups of stock and still would have had lots of mushrooms. Paired it with irish scones with butter. also added a dash of white whine. Recommended!

    Excellent soup! I would make this again and it was so easy. It's also very forgiving if one decides to add more than the 3 recommended cups of mushrooms. I might consider changing the thyme in the recipe to something; not bad but it felt like it was missing something. This reheats well too (2 weeks later and it still tastes great reheated).

    Very good. Even though I used less broth, I still needed to thicken it at the end. The flavor was excellent.. adding Sherry a must. I would definitely make it again

    I used a combination of cremini and shitake mushrooms. I am on a keto diet, so I used coconut milk instead of cream. It turned out quite well.
