I might make it again, Guest Linda in Austin

I followed the recipe exactly & added water chestnuts & wild mushrooms. It was good with the rest of the Thanksgiving meal, but not as delicious as the cream of mushroom naughty recipe :o). I may make it again unless I find another better vegan recipe. Everyone ate it & some went back for seconds
