Do you like Marsala Wine? If you answered yes you are in for a culinary treat. These portabella mushrooms are combined with just the right blend of spices and then simmered in a marsala wine sauce. What you taste is a superb blend of savory flavors rarely found in a creamy mushroom soup. deep bodied and smooth this soup is one you simply must try!
Lobster Bisque is one of my favorite soups. I actually shared Lobster Bisque last year with you. This recipe though is a bit more involved if you want to use fresh lobster which is well worth the bit of trouble. Canned also works if you want something a bit easier. The soup is very rich, so it doesn’t take an enormous bowl to satisfy your hunger. The flavors flow together so well you won’t be able to distinguish where one starts and the other leaves off. This version is definitely one to use for a special occasion. You won’t be disappointed!
This Bourbon Sweet Potato Bisque recipe is the best soup I have made in ages. The sweet potatoes are tender but not mushy. The broth is just the perfect texture. The addition of walnuts give it a small crunch. The addition of a small amount of bourbon adds an indescribable flavor to the soup. Everyone will be asking you what it is. Don’t forget the alcohol burns off but the flavor remains!
