Roasted Creamy Mushroom Soup – Loaded with roasted mushrooms, garlic and parmesan cheese, this Mushroom Soup is creamy, rich and delicious.
Gurrrl, it’s been way too long since we last discussed Soup!
But, first. Happy Sunday, pal!
Tell me, how is your weekend going! Are you having a wonderful time? Are you stuck indoors staring at the crazy-cold that is right outside of your door? Is there snow? ICE? Do tell! Because that is ALL I see! And it’s ICY. And I just rhymed.
Now, get over here, we have mushroom soup to talk about.
The key to this soup-awesomeness is the roasted mushrooms.
Tossing vegetables, or fungi, into the oven is one of my favorite pastimes. Breaking veggies down into releasing those sweet and smoky flavor notes is down right marvelous.
If I can digress for a moment, I’d like to briefly mention that if someone you know does not like vegetables, feed them roasted veggies. Trust me. Start with my Roasted Green Beans. I insist.
On to ‘shrooms.
I’m notorious for making a huge pot of soup every other day, especially during the winter months. Last night we had Minestrone, two days ago we had my Roasted Tomato Soup, and a week before that we had this hearty mushroom soup. It was everything I needed.
This soup went from whole mushrooms, then they were moved to a hot oven, and then to our favorite appliance, the blender.
With only a few fresh ingredients, the soup is incredibly simple and majorly satisfying. Me thinks it should be your Sunday Suppah!
