Dear SOS: We had lunch today at the Cave in the Ventura Wine Co. Our guests had the onion-mushroom soup, which was so delicious that they ordered seconds. Could you please get the recipe for us?
Dear Richard: If you’re craving a bowl of rich mushroom soup, this recipe delivers. No less than a pound of cremini mushrooms are simmered with garlic, shallots, onion and buttery Chardonnay.
It all gets pureed with heavy cream for a smooth, velvety finish.
Stir in a little finely chopped roasted onion at the end and garnish each serving with a thin slice of Parmigiano-Reggiano to complete the dish.
