Paris Mushroom Soup ~ French Fridays With Dorie Recipe

Rosemary, Parsley, and Chives fresh from our garden
Paris Mushroom Soup
We began this month/year/decade of cooking with Dorie Greenspan's Paris Mushroom Soup.  Although I like mushrooms, I was skeptical about this soup because I thought it wouldn't be very flavorful - and, boy, was I wrong!  The combination of flavors and textures in this soup is beyond anything I'd had.  It's a creamy, hearty soup scented with fresh herbs ladled over a fresh mushroom salad, so it's crunchy as well.

The Mushroom Salad

We served this soup with crusty Whole Wheat Bread as a meal - yes, we both had seconds!  But, we thought it would be a great starter for a dinner party, too.  Chock full of vitamins and flavor! 

We garnished our bowls with fresh herbs

Bon Appetit et Bonne Annee!


  1. I loved the soup- It would definitely make a great starter! Love your bowls- I almost put mine in the same ones! :)

  2. I agree, this soup has a knock your socks off flavor! Love your photos!!

  3. A picture is worth a thousand words. You make that soup look very tempting. B:)

  4. Thank you, all! I love that I learn something new each week. And, it's so much fun seeing all the different interpretations.

  5. Great photos. I thought the mushroom salad really added nice texture and flavour to the soup.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you.
