Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This soup is perfect in the winter; so rich and creamy. When I make it, I put it in the blender, but not until pureed. I like mine more chunky. You can use different types of mushrooms, but I am traditional and use ordinary white mushrooms. I like the fact that you don't add any additional thickeners to the soup, the potatoes are enough to give it a great, creamy consistency.
