Yummy Mushroom Soup

What is more comforting and yummy than a bowl of earthy mushroom soup? This is an easy recipe where I really cut back on the heaviness of cream. I always put a little bit of dried wild mushrooms to my soup as it adds to the depth of flavor.

One of my favorite meals especially when the weather is chilly outside is a warm bowl of mushroom soup with avocado toast.
