Creamy Mushroom Soup with Thyme & Garlic Flavored Baguette

Creamy Mushroom Soup with Thyme & Garlic Flavored Baguette | Supa crema de ciuperci

Vegetarian creamy mushroom soup recipe, French inspired and made healthier!  

You already know that I am a huge fan of creamy soups and that I also love mushrooms, so this combination is amazing for me! I was inspired by this recipe I found here and immediately decided to make it myself. As most creamy soups this creamy mushroom soup is a very easy recipe, ready in less than half an hour so you won’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

The crispy flavorful baguettes go perfectly with this creamy mushroom soup. You can also try croutons. This creamy mushroom soup recipe can also be vegan, just skip the yoghurt part. The taste will be pretty much the same.

Yogurt is great for garnish as it creates a lovely contrast and it also makes the mushroom soup whiter. I used homemade kefir which is healthy if you don’t use UHT and use only natural, hormone-free milk. If you want to know more about milk kefir I found this useful article here.
