Weekend Cooking: Triple Mushroom Soup

I recently checked out Slow Cooker: The Best Cookbook Ever. While leafing through the soups I discovered this mushroom soup recipe. My family loves mushrooms and I thought it would be a nice accompaniment to some steaks I was planning on cooking up. I was not wrong. This mushroom soup (recipe link) was creamy and full of flavor. I will be making this one again and again.

In my mind you can never go wrong with a recipe that starts with bacon. The dried porcini mushrooms were a little difficult to find. The first grocery store I went to had never heard of dried mushrooms but I found them at Whole Foods with no problem. A friend suggest that I try the wild mushroom mix at Costco next time. 

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page. For more information, see the welcome post.


  1. Mmm, I love mushrooms, so I will definitely be checking out this recipe!

  2. This sounds delicious! Although my husband isn't a big soup person, so I'm not sure he'd eat it. Except it has mushrooms in it, which he's a big fan of, so maybe...

  3. Oh we love soup, mushrooms, and using the slow cooker! Perfect for us. I've never heard of this cookbook -- I'll have to see if the library has it.

  4. Sounds delicious!!! I'm not sure I could get the others here to eat it but maybe with a bit of rice... And um YES to bacon! ;)

  5. Yes, this sounds delicious and low-carb for my husband, mushroomy for me. I got a new slow cooker at Thanksgiving, but have only used it once!


Shiny! I love comments.
