A tasty soup, by scent, with the aroma of Earth and heart-warming winter? What you need is the mushroom soup. We have learned to love it at a restaurant in a small town in Etna, Randazzo, and then we made our varying the recipe over the years: This is the definitive ' version ', coded by me. A mixture of mushrooms: Champignon, porcini and chanterelles, a drop of brandy, some’ of flour to make it velvety. And then parsley, Fried tomatoes and Croutons….. Enjoy your meal. If you like soups and soups, take a look at Sardinian fregola soup with clams, the cream of tomato, the rice and fish soup with saffron or to fresh vegetable soup.

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 1 kg of mixed mushrooms: Champignon, porcini mushrooms, Galletti (If you do not find them fresh frozen mix is fine too)
  • 10 Blueberry medium or 15 Piccadilly
  • a coffee cup of brandy
  • 2 tablespoons flour

When the water has taken an inviting dark brown and will be velvety texture, blend in the tomato and parsley and remove from heat. Let it sit for a few minutes and, Meanwhile, cut the bread slices, making croutons that then you will FRY in olive oil, slightly salandoli.
