“This is adapted from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Maddison. I love the flavor and simplicity of this soup. It originally calls for cream and mushroom stock but I have cut the fat by using 2% milk and veggie bouillon instead. Feel free to use full fat ingredients if calories are not an issue! You can fry a few mushroom slices in butter as a garnish to make it even better!”
