When the days grows short and the air is crisp we are normally inspired to step into the kitchen and get cooking. These long chilly nights are vastly making this creamy simple satisfying" Bowl Of Mushroom Soup". This is one of my favourite soups of all time. It is easy and the secret to this deep rich soup is a long slow caramelization on the key to unlock the deep earthy flavor of the mushroom.
Using a lots of fresh mushroom shallots garlic and cream if available at time to satisfy my urge to have a bowl of soup. Just walk into the kitchen throw the ingredients together , only to come out with a warm creamy bowl of comforting soup in minutes.
