Rich, comforting mushroom soup that’s made with no cream just just wants needed today! It’s cold and miserable outside and I’m over it.  Since I could potentially work myself into a sour mood, which I refuse to do, I am going to take action!  I have so much to be thankful for, several projects that need attacking and a list of recipes to try.  So, with a good “talking to” that I gave myself – I went shopping in my fridge and pantry & low and behold… I found all the ingredients for mushroom soup.

thick, rich, smooth mushroom soup with no cream

I really, really like a good mushroom soup.  Unfortunately, most recipes call for cream, half & half and other awesome ingredients that I LOVE but have been trying to reduce, or at least pay careful attention to.  Well…today, I am just tickled because I think I’ve hit on something just right.  This mushroom soup is rich with that meaty taste that the portabella mushrooms give to any dish.  Topped off with some scallions and maybe some crusty bread – there will be no bad attitudes here tonight!

Notes ~ you can use all vegetable or beef broth if that’s what you have on hand.  I found that the beef broth brought out the flavor of the mushrooms and provided a more flavorful soup.
