Its hard to believe that this recipe doesn't have any beef broth in it! It is so rich and hearty. The mushrooms and soy sauce trick the mind and eye with the dark brown color. Thanks for posting. Made for Veggy Tag 2009 Lucky 13.
I was a wee bit disappointed with this soup, I made the stock but I felt it was missing something, maybe it was not seasoned enough for us, so I ajusted it to our taste. Also I started to roast the onions in the oven, but I felt that they were drying out to much on the edges and burning, so I finished them on top of the stove, added the stock and it ended up not too bad. Made for PAC 2009 (Updated 04/15/09) Since making this soup I found out from the chef (who was good enough to mail me) that she had made an error, so I thought the least I could do was make it again and I was very pleasantly surprised the difference a few ingredients made to this. If you look at my first picture, which I hope kat will ask to be removed, you can see the change. Now I will! make this again. Thank you for mailing me to give me the chance to make a better job this time.
