mushroom soup


Mushrooms are used in many recipes and it's always useful to have some on hand. This is not just mushroom soup. It is the essential ingredient for a multitude of recipes.

Plain mushroom base looks dirty-brown. Compared to the bright white of canned cream of mushroom, some might feel that doesn't look very appetizing. Adding cream will lighten the color.
