When winter’s chill-you-to-the-bone temperatures take hold, there’s nothing like a bowl of hot and savory soup to warm the soul. When I was a kid, a piping cup of soup and a gooey grilled cheese sandwich was my mom’s go-to meal for me and my sisters when we stomped off our snowy boots and peeled off our puffy snowsuits after spending hours playing in the snow.
Soup is still one of my favorite comfort foods, and this mushroom medley recipe knows how to take center stage when the temperature dips. Its rich broth conveys decadence, while the tender mounds of mushrooms and other hearty vegetables add a healthy and colorful splash to your bowl. My recipe also includes chicken bone broth instead of just traditional chicken broth – a wonderful way to boost vital minerals that can help keep you healthy during cold and flu season. I often pair my soup with a side salad, but if you’re able to eat grains and dairy, go ahead and relive your childhood with an ooey, gooey grilled cheese.
Note: This recipe contains chicken broth, but if you’re vegetarian, simply double up on the vegetable broth. It still tastes delicious!
