On a recent trip to the grocery store I came across an amazing variety pack of mushrooms. Tucked away in my binder full of recipes I had saved this delicious looking recipe for Mushroom soup from Season with Spice. These mushrooms were perfect to give this recipe a try. The recipe exceeded my expectations and is now, by far, my favorite mushroom soup recipe. A hint of nutmeg adds incredible, but subtle flavor. This recipe serves 2 so be sure to double or more, for second helpings or to feed the family.
A exotic variety of mushroom added delicious flavour to my soup.
