foxl is the one who discovered this; she adapted it from a recipe in Dana Carpender's 500 Low Carb recipes. We're having it for supper tonight!

Artichoke Mushroom soup

1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 large ribs celery, chopped
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 - 4 tbsp. butter, for sautéing the veggies
1 can artichoke hearts, drained (rinsed, if you wish)
1 quart broth - I used vegetable, but chicken would be good
1/2 cup cream
black pepper to taste
cayenne to taste
dill weed (optional)
(don't be tempted to add salt - it prob'ly doesn't need any)
1 tbsp. lemon juice

Sauté the vegetables in the butter in stockpot.

Run artichoke hearts and a cup of the broth in blender till puréed. Add purée and remainder of broth to stockpot.

Heat to serving temperature; add cream, lemon juice & seasonings.

Can also be served cool.

For nice texture contrast on this, sauté the onion & celery until just tender-crisp.
