If you mean the portabella bisque it's in Tried and True.

Thanks for asking Pamilyn, I have mushrooms that I need to work with and tomorrow is my day off too. Sounds like soup and salad for dinner this week.


I have a feeling that I am going to have to break down and buy this book.

The Mushroom Bisque is to die for.  Let us know how you like it.

I made it this morning and we had it for lunch. We thought it was delicious. I think I might put a small shot of sherry in the leftovers. Really good as is though. Pamilyn

You know when you break it down....it is only about 2 Tbl. cream per serving. Thats not THAT bad. It's not like we are going to eat it every day. It's really good. Leftovers for lunch today at work. Yummy, thanks for posting it for me. Borders didn't have the book in stock. Pamilyn

Figuring 8 servings, it's 500+ calories per, and Biscuit says that for a main dish you'd better figure 4 servings. That's about my total daily requirement and 90+% is from Fat!  It's not something I make often. LOL. It is wonderful of course. Yum.

Serious????? 500 calories per serving????

Be still my heart - I was planning on making it as a first course for our New Year's Eve dinner....

maybe if the rest of the meal is water and parsley, it will work..... :-)

2 tbl. of heavy cream is 500 calories from fat???  I'm not questioning you but - really?  Are you sure that's right?  That's doesn't seem right to me. 


Edited to say:  by my calculations, it's only 50 calories per tablespoon, 5 grams of fat per tbl., 3.5 grams of satfat.  That would make the cream alone per serving 100 calories, not 500+.


or am I calculating wrong?  I usually use calorie-count.com to figure out nutritional values.

Whipping cream is 50 calories per tablespoon, but you're getting more than 2 tablespoons if you're having a dinner serving.

Just going by the analysis of MasterCook.  There's butter in there too don't forget.  (I was shocked too.)  Maybe they're wrong-that would be a good thing.

I just checked Master Cook.  It's coming up at around 500 Calories for 6 servings or 380 for 8 servings.


I usually cut the cream down to 2/3 of a cup.  I've never missed the extra 1/3 cup and it does save a few fat calories.

No, sorry - I misunderstood you.  I thought you were saying that the cream ALONE was 500 cal. per serving!  (G)  Sorry -

I just made a mushroom soup that actually makes you feel virtuous. I found it on epicurious. It is Anthony Bourdain's, from Les Halles cookbook. No cream. Just mushrooms, a little butter, onion, chicken broth. A little time in the blender, and New Year's resolutions don't look so bleak.

I've made one from John Ash that has all wild mushrooms (I do part dry, part fresh), meat stock, and tomatoes. No cream. Very good.

Reporting back

made the soup, but reduced the amount of cream quite a bit for the love of my waistline...

hubby said it was the best soup I've ever made! And that is saying a lot, because last year I was in a soup-roll and tried A LOT of recipes.

I froze half the batch (without adding the cream) - we will probably have a dinner party sometime this month and serve it as soup shots when the guests arrive. I love the idea of soup shots, very nice way to welcome guests in a Winter eve

Thanks for pointing me to the recipe, Biscuit

and... Happy New Year!
