Quick Mushroom & White Bean Soup

I think I just found one of my favorite soups to prepare. Ever. Yup, you heard right. This is a healthy, delicious, hearty soup that can be made in under 30 minutes! There was a ton of mushrooms in the fridge just waiting to get in my belly, and I thought I’d try something different. I’ve never made a mushroom soup before, but the thought of mushrooms in a soupy broth really appealed to my taste buds.

Upon scouring my foodgawker app (as I usually do), I found this interesting recipe that is originally intended for the slow-cooker. I didn’t have time, or necessarily the desire to wait till TOMORROW to have soup, I decided to adapt the recipe to my time-frame and palate. I think everything tastes better with ginger and garlic, so of-course I had to add it to the recipe.

This dish was such a hit with my family friends, that they keep reminding me to send them the recipe, which is the main reason why I am updating the blog way past my bedtime! Now that I started my internship, I make it a point to go to bed by 10 o’clock just so I am not a zombie in the AM. For those of you that know me personally, know that is indeed a radical change! RIP my 12, 1, 2, or even 3 am bedtime.
