Creamy Mushroom Soup recipe
This creamy mushroom soup is a heart warming delicious soup for all the mushroom lovers.
On a blustery winter evening, after a hectic day,who wouldn’t love to relax with their family, in their warm home, on a cozy couch, and dunk warm crusty bread lathered with butter in a bowl full of steaming creamy soup.I guess you all would!!!
So this one day, I was looking for some nice and easy soup recipe to create a perfect family evening.I had mushrooms in the fridge, and I wanted to cook something different using mushrooms. I had soup on my mind , I started searching for mushroom soup recipes. Found quite a few recipes on the internet, but couldn’t actually decide which one to go with as I did not have all the ingredients, for any one recipe. So I gathered all the ingredients that I had and made a recipe that was a kind of an adaptation of 2-3 recipes. But one thing I can promise.. the result was pure deliciousness..and I did succeed in my attempt to create a nice cozy family evening, without too much of an effort 😉
If you love your mushrooms, and want to create a warm ,simple but filling soup/starter , I would really recommend you try this recipe.You can pair this with garlic breads, crusty mini cheese bruschetta, toasted and buttered ciabatta , or even a simple cheese toast.
