Easy Mushroom Soup

This easy mushroom soup started as a very simple, quick recipe to use up mushrooms that I had on hand, but the results became outstanding. I think the best part is that this version did not require cream and was still delicious. Yes, of course It is not the most beautiful soup in the world but since it tastes so good no one seemed to care. Not only was this recipe amazing to eat, it warms the house with wonderful smells and aromas! It was great the first day but even better on the following. This recipe takes time but is worth the effort. Easy-mushroom-soup-566x640

Super basic recipe – the quality here will depend on your ingredients and cooking. I had baby bellas on hand and used those (you can use portobello mushrooms, also you can get mushrooms that are already sliced to save some time ). If you’re a mushroom lover definitely use more than a pound of mushrooms. Fantastic with some french bread and a simple salad. Great winter treat!easy-mushroom-soup-2-425x640
