10 Stars!!! Loved this soup! I made this more of a mushroom brie soup by using just over a pound of sliced mushrooms and I sauteed them in marsala (substitute for sherry) and butter along with diced carrots with the lid on to keep all the juice. Added the whole mix to the broth after I strained it - OMG the BEST mushroom soup I've ever made! Read More

This is a soup that suffers with an identity crisis. It didn't bowl me over but it also was far from spectacular. It wants to be a vegetable soup but appears to taste like a cream of chicken. Very disappointed with this one. Read More

A definite 5 star!!! This is such a delicious and impressive soup. I served it for friends in individual bread bowls and everyone LOVED it! Seconds were had by all and they could have ate more if I had made more! Next time I make this which will be soon I will cut back on the brie add more mushrooms and use the lowest sodium broth I can find. It was a bit too salty for my taste. However don't let that put you off. It is a scrumptious must try!!!!! Read More

This soup sounded so divine I had to give it a try. At the dinner everyone enjoyed it so much they all asked for seconds and didn't save room for the main course. Definitely deserves 5 stars! Read More

OK I made a few changes to this recipe to meet my family's preferences. I appreciate the recipe and that's why I'm giving it five stars. I had a large wheel of Brie to use and this took care of half of it and my kids ate the soup asking for more!!! I changed the veggies to 1/2 leek sliced thinly and about 1/2 cup chopped carrots and added them at the beginning with the butter. I therefore didn't really do the roux but did let the flour brown slightly. I probably had at least 16 oz of Brie maybe a few ounces more and trimmed off all of the end and most of the rind on the top and bottom-I left some as I like the flavor. This was a yummy soup our family enjoyed as a main course with rolls-thanks for submitting it! Read More

Simple and delicious. I used 1 carrot 2 stalks of celery and half an onion in this recipe. Also used a 1:1 ratio for the chicken broth and skim milk (substituted for the heavy cream). I poured this in the blender and lightly pureed it. Voila! Topped with green onions. Delicious. Read More

This soup is AMAZING! We omitted the mushrooms because I dont like them. I also put the sherry in with the brie to let them marinate and melt together. Once the veggies were al dente we pureed everything together. I forgot to put the cream in and the soup didn't need it so try it before you add the cream. Read More

Followed the recipe to a tee and got a bland train wreck of odious consistency. Maybe we messed this up somewhere along the line that I'm not seeing but it was awful. Read More
