Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Hungarian Mushroom Soup
If you like mushrooms, you’re going to love this creamy mushroom soup.

This Hungarian Mushroom Soup recipe is inspired by a dish I enjoyed at Old Wives Tale in Portland, way back in 2008.

I’ve put my own spin on it, of course, complete with garlic-shallot puree and a gremolata topping. I think this is way better than most cream of mushroom soup recipes, and I hope you’ll agree!
