This soup is fantastic! It's so rich and creamy. With these baby portobello mushrooms, it almost becomes MEATY! A wonderful soup and can be served for any meal, whether it be a simple dinner for 1, the full family, or a nice special meal!
This could easily be vegetarian, by using vegetable stock, rather than the chicken stock. Remove the bacon and just use a little olive oil for cooking the veggies. You could even make it completely vegan by using almond milk. You could even go a step further and use a wonder faux-cream, like MimicCreme
It couldn't hurt to throw some nice Italian parsley leaves on top, or puree a small handful of spinach into the soup. Maybe even some pine nuts for a little more textural contrast!
This is a wonderful, low carb, yet full bodied and delicious soup.
