A Soup For Mushroom Lovers!

I have mentioned before that I so want Stella to like soups and eat them more, well I found one that she just loves!  Me not so much.  Stella had this soup over at a friends house and just raved about it – so of course I asked for the recipe.  It is not specific on the mushrooms to use – so since I am not a huge mushroom fan I used the only mushrooms I really like – portobello, in hopes that I would like this soup.

Stella has pretty much eaten this for a week straight, adding either some homemade rye bread or pizza toast.  She just can’t get enough of it.
