Laura’s Mushroom Soup

PREP 20 min | TOTAL 60 min

I’ll never forget the day I met this soup.  It was love at first bite. We were over at my wife’s friend’s house for dinner with the kids.  She served this homemade creamy mushroom soup that was peppery with a slight taste of lemon.  Tears of happiness welled in my eyes… okay, sorry a little much, but I can honestly say I have, to this day, never tasted such a fantastic soup.  My rating 10/10!
