I had recently come across a few blogs that featured a recipe for Hungarian Mushroom Soup and OH MY GOSH did it look good. I knew that I had to make it and that Ed would love it. Ed LOVES mushrooms! However when I told Ed about it he was not as excited as I would of hoped. I was a little perplexed so I said ” Doesn’t it sound good?” and he replied “What else are we going to have with it?” As it turns out Ed does not believe that soup = meal. I happen to disagree with him and believe that soup accompanied with a nice bread makes a wonderful meal. However Ed doesn’t complain much so I decided to humor him on this one and make some salmon and place it atop some greens that had been tossed in a vinaigrette along with some rosemary and olive oil bread. This also made my daughter happy as she refused to try the soup and might have otherwise starved. The soup turned out really good. I put the question mark next to Hungarian in the title because the biggest change to the original recipe that I made was substituting thyme for the dill and I’m not sure if that removes the authenticity and makes it more of just a mushroom soup. In the future I might play with the ratio of milk to sour cream or maybe substitute the milk with cream but neither is necessary to enjoy this soup.
and here is the salmon on greens with bread
