Garlic Mushroom Clear Soup

Garlic & Mushroom Soup

This soup was originally scheduled to make it to Soups with SS. However, it didn’t and now we’re too late. Hopefully, we’re able to make it to Sonal & Shruti’s next event. For now, we’ll pretend we attended the soup party. 🙂

We love soups and clear soups even more. The reason why soups haven’t made an entry on our blog yet is because we miserably to capture soups in way that make them look edible. We struggle with making soup look like soup in photos and stopped trying to click them a while ago. I will not go into details of how our soup looked in photos since we don’t want to turn you away from this wonderful ‘shroom soup that we made here.

This time around too, we struggled. The lens just wouldn’t focus on the soup and the soup was reflecting way too much light. We wondered if it was because the soup was clear? But then we’ve seen pretty photos of clear soups so that ain’t the problem. We’re still not good at it yet but hopefully we’ll get there. So please excuse us for not getting you great pictures but the soup is DELICIOUS!

Garlic  Mushroom Clear Soup

The only reason we gathered confidence and patience to click our Mushroom Soup was the Soups with SS to which we didn’t make. I guess it’s never too late.

So here we are with a super-easy, quick, light yet hearty & delicious soup!

Here is how we made the ‘shroom soup:
