This delicious recipe was a Pintrest find. It makes me so happy when I make something from Pintrest and it comes out delicious. After our food & wine pairing at Thumbprint Cellars last Saturday, I was craving mushrooms. After going through my pinned recipes, I came across this White Bean and Roasted Mushroom Soup. I knew I had to try it immediately.
All the ingredients fit inside David’s diet, so I went for it. I’m so glad I did because this was such a comforting soup. The flavor is phenomenal from the roasted onions, garlic, mushrooms, and herbs.
It isn’t really soup weather here in Nor Cal lately, which makes me kind of sad. I’m hearing how the rest of the country is getting slammed with snow storms, and it seems like we’ve had a very dry winter. It started out with a good amount of rain in December, but since then it’s been ridiculously spring like. I’m sure some of you may be jealous, and it has been really nice, but I do like snow and rain, and not having a good amount of it, kind of makes for a scary summer.
Anyway, if you’re in one of those parts that’s having less spring-like weather, then I recommend making this easy, fast, and completely comforting soup! Enjoy!
