So earthy, hearty, rich tasting and delicious, this mushroom soup is absolutely a show stopper at the dinner table. I don't roast mushrooms before boiling them in soups because while it might make the dish more flavorful, the loss of nutrients during double cooking process just doesn't justify it for me. Fresh food made with fresh ingredients using farm-to-table approach is always best...and healthiest.

This soup will leave you feeling satisfied but not heavy. It's filling yet light, delicious and very flavorful.

Mushrooms are really a superfood that is packed with nutritional value. They are rich in vitamin C, D, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, iron, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and copper and possess antimicrobial, antitumor and bioactive compounds, etc.
