Now that Sweet Tomatoes has closed I have been searching everywhere for their 
mushroom soup recipe. Can you help?

We used to go just for that one soup.  My husband would usually have 3-4 bowls. 
We really miss it!


Hi Mary,

Sweet Tomatoes/Souplantation have a blog where home versions of their recipes, called "copycats" are posted.  There is a recipe there for their Cream of Mushroom Soup. See: Souplantation at Home

I have also posted it below.


Cream Of Mushroom Soup
Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes Copycat Recipe

5 cups sliced mushrooms, 1/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
1 cup celery, 1/2 inch thick (about 1 1/2 large ribs)
1/2 stick salted butter, plus 2 1/2 tablespoons, divided
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
4 1/2 tablespoons all purpose flour
3 1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon beef base
1 tablespoon chicken base
2 cups whole milk
1 cup half and half
salt and pepper, to taste

In a large saucepan, combine mushrooms, celery, 1 stick butter and pepper. 
Saute over medium heat for 15 minutes or until vegetables have cooked down 
and released their juices. Remove from heat and set aside. Do not discard 

While mushrooms and celery are cooking, in a large saucepan, melt remaining 
5 tablespoons butter over medium heat and stir in flour. Cook for 1 minute, 
stirring constantly. Add water in 1/2 cup increments, stirring between each 
addition to be sure no lumps form. Add beef base and chicken base and bring 
mixture to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Soup will thicken. 
Stir in milk, half and half and reserved mushrooms and celery, with their 
cooking liquid. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
