We really rooted for it when Virginia Woolf said, “Soup is cuisines kindest course” and what better way to close a hectic Monday than with a bowl of nourishing and healthy mushroom olive and asparagus soup? We live on good soup, not on fine words and if happiness is homemade soup for you too, this drool-worthy mushroom olive and asparagus soup recipe is all you need to brighten up your Monday night.
Hungry and thirsty? Soup solves both problems at once as it is eccentric by nature. They say it puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, awakens and refines the appetite and we can’t agree more.
