SOUPS
Shroomy Shorba
This shroomy soup reminds me of a cosy winter. I love warming up with this mushroom soup, especially when I know it is made with healthy ingredients. One bowl will most likely not be enough!
HERO INGREDIENT
Mushrooms

Mushrooms are also called toadstools. A single Portabella mushroom can contain more potassium than a banana.
