delicious, this would be a great recipe for 2 as an appetizer, i just love mushrooms and tarragon together. this is also quick cooking, less than 30 minutes from start to finish with big flavor, great week night soup, i made it for lunch as i was home today.
The herb combination gives this soup a fantastic flavor! I used the larger amount of tarragon listed (love the stuff!). I skipped the olive oil and just used the 2 tbsp of butter. I didn't measure the salt, but I know that I didn't use as much as called for. If you like mushrooms, this is for you! Thanx for sharing this; I'll make this again.
I made this soup just for me so experimented a bit with the "spare". As is, the soup is very good. It is creamy even without the sour cream and the paprika gives it a bit of a kick. For me, the soup really came alive when I whizzed the second batch in a food processor, the flavours melded togather very well and it tasted so rich and creamy! This is going in my quick and simple book as thats just what it is!
