    Miraklegirl's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe I found in a "Best of Italy" cookbook. I think a shot of sherry would be really good in this as well.

      This soup is amazing! The flavor is wonderful, and makes the perfect consistency when made as directed. I used a mix of dried mushrooms and crimini for the fresh. I added the suggested shot of sherry while the onions and mushrooms were softening. I also added a bit of truffle oil at the very end with the cream. This is seriously delicious stuff, and really very easy and quick. Try it now!

      I made this using plain ole button mushrooms and dried shitake. I followed it as directed, unfortunately I did not like the dried mushrooms left unblended and I think I would prefer to blend it all next time. Aside from that it was very easy and I will definitely make again.

      As the Miraklesis I get to taste Aviva's creations first hand at her dinner table! Like everything else, this soup was amazing. Creamy and light, a delight to come home to!
