healthy mushroom soup

I just LOVE my healthy soup recipes and this is one of them.  Using wild mushrooms rather than regular button mushrooms adds wonderful flavour to this creamy soup. Try a blend of cremini, porcini or shiitake. If you are trying to avoid alcohol, replace the sherry with an additional 1/2 cup of broth.
