My clients requested a creamy hearty soup and this one met the demand. Broth-creamy mushrooms + fresh herbs makes you feel like you're in a garden of warm soup. Interesting picture but fantasy cooking is the way to live. Plus top it off with some crunchy homemade croutons, a little burnt, salty and perfectly buttered.
You know its about to be really rainy this week in Los Angeles and all I can think is how the entire city needs to be blessed with a bowl of soup. SO if you get around to making it, i suggest doubling it to share with a friend.
