This recipe is one I created by combining my Roasted French Onion Soup and elements of a mushroom soup found on 'Zaar; the mushrooms are made rich and succulent by roasting them with garlic while the onions are roasting. I make it using a combination of button, cremini, portabella, and shitake mushrooms - I love how the portabella mushrooms add depth and enhance the mushroom flavour. It can be served as is, or done up like french onion soup, with toasted crusty bread and melted old cheddar on top. If you're not a vegetarian, you could use beef broth instead of the dark vegetable stock.
