Bella & Wild Mushroom Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Aproned Cynthia

Years ago, I tried the wild mushroom soup at Au Bon Pain bakery and knew immediately I had to find the recipe. I never found the recipe, so I created my own. This soup is fragrant, creamy and flavorful.

Love mushrooms! This soup was different than the other mushroom soups that I have tried, but I enjoyed every bite. I did have to add a little salt, due to my salt addiction. Was unable to find the dried mushrooms so I can only imagine how much better it would have been with them. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe Aproned Cynthia! Made for Fall PAC 2012
