Jan 15, 2015 on

My Grandmother was craving mushroom soup but can not have cream. I made this for her for lunch today and she was just tickled pink. She loved it and so did I. I left the ham out as she was just wanting mushrooms. Next time I make this just for myself the Ham is going in. She prefers kale to arugula, so I added arugula to mine and yummy. Her...

Croutons only review. I had extra baguettes that I didn't want to go to waste and she said they freeze beautifully. If there are any left to freeze. I will do this with from now on. Will try the soup on a different day. BEST CROUTONS EVER! My mother and I munched on them as I cooked them with wine. Will do this at a party!!

Lunch today with my mother! She loved it and so did I!!!! I did end up adding balsamic but I tried a bite first with just the sherry vinegar. It needed it. The sun dried tomatoes make the entire thing perfect. You need that sweet bite. Will be a normal thing in my week. So easy. I let the mushrooms come to room temp, my mom is not really of fan...

iMade this tonight two ways. First way I followed the recipe to a tee and it was absolutely YUMMY! Second version I followed the recipe exactly but did not add the any milk or cream as my Grandmother is lactose intolerant. I also omitted the red pepper flakes as she doesn't do spicy. I just added more chicken broth to make up for the milk and cream.....

e oI was really excited about this recipe and it just didn't work for me. Its good but it just tastes like peas. A bit like fancy baby food. I took the advice of another review and added garlic and lemon juice as well as a little extra tarragon as I like the flavor. The garlic gave it a little heat but it still just didn't tickle my taste buds....

Christmas eve favorite this year, give yourself more to let it reduce it takes longer. I added honey to taste, more than she did but the meat is off the bone yummy. Basically use her cooking method and then put any sauce on top if you are afraid of her flavors. They are fantastic!

I think this might be the 3rd or 4th time I have made this and every time is just delicious! This time I halfed the recipe and totally messed up on my measurements and less carrots more celery and it was just as delicious! Basically if this is your first time cooking this Devine soup, you really can't mess it up if you just stick to the basic ingredients!...

Not my first me now my last. Delicious! I add carrots instead of green beans as my husband is not fond of them. This recipe is always a sure fire way to get my son to come visit from college. Only problem is I never get any leftovers, he steals them.

Absolutely delicious! I make Posole all the time but never this quickly with such flavors that developed in such a short time. I grilled my corn and peppers on the bbq, faster, I did not add the lime juice. I added a extra corn cob because I had one. I will be making another batch tomorrow without the hominy as I tend to use it as a Poblano tomatillos...
