Soup was the theme of yesterday's Darling Bakers group cook-along.
I've been looking forward to this all month ~ a wonderful group of internet friends gathering to share recipes and camaraderie. It's so interesting to see what each member will choose to make, and the presentation is half the fun!
I chose two different soups, the creamy one here and a brothy one just because soup is so popular at my house.
This is the first time I made this particular soup ~ Creamy Brie with Mushrooms.
I found the recipe on The Recipe Link , (you can click the link if you would like to see the recipe.)
I thought it sounded very good when I read over the recipe, but it exceeded my expectations. Oh my goodness, this is a divine soup!
I changed it around just a little by streamlining some unnecessary steps and it was still excellent.
Here are the changes I made:
The roasted garlic would be very good, but I just minced mine and added at the beginning of the reduction. It mellowed out very nicely and played just as a background flavor. I didn't strain the soup, and instead of heavy cream, I added half and half. I also skipped the Buttery Croutons.
An absolutely delicious, creamy soup with a nice Brie flavor. It's already been placed in my permanent file.
If you like Brie, you will really enjoy this soup. I hope you'll try it.
