Creamy Brie Soup with Mushrooms


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.

  8. You're killing me here, Mari! Oh my gosh. SUCH a beautiful presentation - you really should be a food stylist (or maybe you are!) The soup sounds delicious... I made a brie en croute over Christmas... one of my favorite cheeses.

  13. This looks so good, Mari. Another brie fan here but I'm not sure if I'm in love more with the soup or the bowls :) What a wonderful collection you have!

  14. Wow that looks so yummy. I especially love the carrots that are cut to look like flowers. Showed them to my husband who does all my slicing & dicing but can't convince him yet to do it that way. Oh well.

  16. Hi Mari,

    Over the weekend, we went out to eat & I enjoyed some delicious portabello mushroom soup with brie. I googled to find a similar recipe & up you came with this year old post! I should have known enough to check out your site first. :-)

    I hope to make this to go with tonight's supper. Thanks for the BEAUTIFUL presentation & for the link to the recipe, as well. I will follow your changes, too.

    gratefully yours,
    Rett
