|Chestnut Mushroom Soup|
Chestnut Mushroom soup is elegant and delicious enough for these special times. In this recipe; cremini and shiitake mushrooms are paired with chestnuts that I purchased from Trader Joe’s that were already cooked and peeled. Everything was simmered together with the typical mirepoix and fresh thyme, and then pureed at the end. My husband remarked that while he enjoys my other creamy concoctions, this one was one of the best. Quite a compliment coming from him. Hope you give this soup a try. Happy Holidays!
Fun fact***Did you know that chestnuts are low in fat and have no cholesterol? Also they are the only nut with a serious amount of vitamin C. They also have a sweet, delicate, earthy like flavor which would make them taste wonderful in sweets too.
