Date tried: June 4, 2014
Yield: 3 quarts
Time needed: 1 hour

Keep your timer handy for this one.  There are several steps that take a few minutes each.  Basic prep: chop or slice all vegetables; sauté and purée mushroom stems; sauté potatoes; then put potatoes, mushrooms & stock together to complete cooking. Milk & parsley are added just before serving. It takes attention, but it is a delicious soup and also keeps well, justifying the large quantity.
