Today, I am excited to share this delicious mushroom soup recipe from Benjamin Smith of  I love soup and this recipe is legit!!  Give it a try!

I’ve had an odd history with mushrooms. For too long I completely neglected the magic white stuff. I often thought of it as flavorless and as filler food. But boy was I wrong!

Mushrooms have long been associated with a whole range of health benefits, such as mood-boosting vitamin D, a faster metabolism for weight loss, and a robust immune system.

Not only this, but they’re also crazy delicious.

So what dish finally made me change my attitude towards mushrooms? Nothing elaborate like vegetarian pâté, or bourguignon, but a brilliantly simple and straightforward one: Mushroom soup.

Its rich and creamy composition is beautiful, and with the onset of winter not far away it’s great to have a strong soup recipe as part of your culinary repertoire!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I loved making it. Be sure to let me know what you think of it, and if you have a different take on it!

Now let’s make this thing.
