    I love gouda cheese and soup but I did not particularly like the two together.

    Pretty tasty. I used a cracked pepper smoked gouda (I'm a pepper Lover). I also doubled the mushrooms to make it even better.

    This is a delicious soup. The ingredients can be tweaked and some substititutions made as desired by the kitchen-savvy cook. It is also good as a cream soup without the cheese.

    Made this one about a week ago. Smoked Gouda is my favorite cheese so I added more. The sherry gave it a nice flavor. I added a variety of mushrooms.Overall fantastic!

    Absolutely incredible! I don't know any other word that would properly describe how delicious this soup is! I made the recipe exactly as written, except at the end I pureed the soup because I don't like chewing bits of mushroom. My husband was crazy about it, he said "I could get addicted to this!"

    I tried this recipe after eating something similar at a local soup restaurant. The flavor of this soup came really close to their recipe. I'm vegetarian so I substituted No-Chicken Broth. Very rich and filling!
