The weather in Bahrain calls for a soup. Cream of mushroom soup is something that we both enjoy. It's been on my “to do” list for ages. Last week both of us were feeling a bit under the weather, so it was like the scene was set for a bowl of steaming hot soup!
I've tried versions of mushroom soup from different restaurants. Most of the time, the cream of mushroom soup would just taste like a steaming bowl of cream and butter, with no trace of mushroom whatsoever. Recently we tried it from a new restaurant and it hit all the right notes. First and foremost the mushroom was there and it was creamy! I was looking for such a recipe and finally found it here.
The texture and flavour of this soup is great! There are bits of mushroom floating around in this creamy soup, flavoured with thyme and parsely.
Btw, I'm sorry I dont have step by step pictures of this one. While I was making this, I had someone standing right next to me chanting “I'm hungry, hungry boys are angry boys”, so I completely forgot about the step by step pics, sigh!
