Mushroom soup is always a favourite, however, we think that this particular one adds something extra. Using two different types of mushrooms provides the soup with varying textures and flavours so that every mouthful is a taste of something different. This soup works perfectly as a lunchtime treat with a delicious crusty roll of bread and is always a crowd pleaser when used as a starter for a family meal or special occasion.
