I love mushrooms, can’t think of a way I don’t like to eat them except for when they’re not fried before going on pizza and they go all dry and shrivelled. This soup, however, was not a way that I enjoyed eating mushrooms, it really wasn’t very nice at all and I had to force us all to eat it before throwing the leftovers down the drain (shows how awful it was as I hate wasting food).
The recipe was from 1000 Vegan Recipes and I’m not sure if it was the recipe or the mushrooms that were at fault. It’s so dark because I used half black gilled mushrooms rather than white ones. The fried mushroom garnish with soy sauce was the only thing that made it edible, even the bread I’d bought to go with the soup wasn’t very nice so it was kind of a fail all around.
However, there are many more soup and mushroom recipes in the world so I’m not despairing and 1 thing that doesn’t work out in a book with 999 other recipes isn’t too bad!
