BB: Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup


Our final Barefoot Blogger recipe for the month of September was Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup, selected by Chelle of Brown Eyed Baker. I love mushroom soup in any form, so I was looking forward to making this one. Because of time constraints this month (travel plans), I chose to make just half a recipe, and because cremini mushrooms are essentially baby portobello mushrooms, I used just creminis and shiitakes for the soup.



It’s a delicious and lovely soup. When my daughter comes home from school in December, I will definitely make it for her, and we can compare it to my usual cream of mushroom soup. Come to think of it, I should make that one again and write up a comparison. How about in October, when I’m back from vacation?

I wish I thought to cut this in half! There was no way that hubs and I were ever going to finish the full recipe (and our kids were no help with this, go figure) and I wasn't sure that this would freeze well, so I ended up throwing a bunch of it out. That hurt. Your soup looks wonderful, and I am so glad that you enjoyed it! Have a great trip!

your soup looks great--love the blue bowl. Making 1/2 was smart of you--although i actually liked my leftovers more than I did the first day.
