This Rustic Mushroom Soup has made a fibber out of me. I used to detest mushrooms. Mushrooms would be picked off a pizza, strained from the gravy and avoided at all salad bars. It’s amazing how you can spend the large part of your life swearing off something you last tried when you were eight years old.
Note to self: Try liver.
On second thought, sometimes your eight-year-old self knows what she’s talking about.
Fortunately for mushrooms – the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus – I’m now a fan. What better way to enjoy mushrooms then in a big, hearty bowl of mushroom soup. Mushrooms are definitely the feature in this woodsy soup but the addition of dill, lemon and yogurt contrasts the earthy flavor for a soup that’s truly spectacular.
Stick to your favourite type of mushroom or opt for a variety. I used a combination of white and cremini mushrooms in my version.Served with a thick slice of crusty bread, this Rustic Mushroom Soup is sure to please.
