The deep flavor of earthy roasted mushrooms explode in this rich and creamy Roasted Mushroom Bisque.
Do you ever feel like it would just be easier to burn down your house rather than attempt to clean it, or is that just me? Not that I don't enjoy cleaning my house only to watch my daughter dump her toys all over the living room minutes later, and then proceed to discover the joy of pressing cereal between book pages just to watch it crumble.
My wife and I are currently house shopping and the number one thing I want in our next house is an open concept kitchen that looks into the living room so I can watch our children as I work on recipes. While attempting to perfect this Roasted Mushroom Bisque recipe I found myself sprinting back and forth from the kitchen to living room in a vain effort to keep my daughter out of trouble.
In the end, the living room may have become a lost cause, but this recipe turned out exceptionally!
My Roasted Mushroom Bisque is a must for mushroom lovers! This earthy soup is as creamy as it is comforting!
