CREAMY MUSHROOM SOUP WITH FENNEL SEEDS

Fresh White Button Mushrooms

Do you want a recipe of a simple yet tasty mushroom soup? Here it is. I like it with ground fennel seeds in it but then I am very fond of those little rascals, not all of you are but then you can add a herb instead, I know that thyme goes very well too with this soup and I am sure you can find other suitable herbs and spices for this soup. The rice works as a thickener, you don’t need much to make it creamy.
