Mushroom Soup for the Soul


Mushroom Soup


Returning home from the weekend the fridge is pretty empty other than a box of mushrooms from the vegebox , I could eulogise forever about how different these babies are to anything you find in a supermarket instead of going slimey to indicate they are reaching the end of their lives delicate gills release gentle black spores this means they are perfect for soup.

Mushroom soup has a rich earthy taste though I have made it with wild mushrooms but so far the fungi season has been a little disappointing this was just for lunch
