  1. Fry bacon in a stockpot over medium heat until it is semi-crispy, about 5 minutes. Stir in potatoes and onion and cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in mushrooms, garlic powder, and onion powder; cook and stir until mushrooms have softened, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Pour water and milk over mushroom mixture, add thyme and flour, and bring to a boil. Boil until potatoes are very soft, adding water as needed, about 20 minutes. Crush some of the potatoes with a wooden spoon to reach a creamier consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

It is good, but not much flavor. I did use much more than 1 cup of mushrooms. I also did 1 cup milk 1 cup water and added water as needed.

Wow! This is really good and your right, it's very creamy. It's great as it is, it's also good using vegetable broth instead of water. Thank you for sharing.

My mistake. Followed recipe closely except did not have any potatoes, so used boxed mashed. Added far too much and the soup turned to mush!! I now can see how a few chopped russets would be far...

Delicious soup. One would never know that this is 'skinny'. Quick, easy and simple to make.

This soup didn't agree with my taste. I shared the soup with 3 coworkers who typically enjoy cream-based soups. They said they really loved the soup. They said it was very tasty and flavorful ...

Tasted too much of the potatoes and not enough of the mushrooms

It seemed like more potato than mushroom soup, even after I added extra mushrooms. Next time I'll mash up the potatoes and add a little more seasoning. My husband gave it thumbs up.
