Wild Mushroom Soup “Cappuccino”

Soup makes for a cheerful party hors d'oeuvre when served in a small vessel like an espresso cup. With a dollop of whipped cream, it looks like a frothy cappuccino. For accompanying recipes, entertaining tips and a video, visit —Katie Lee

    Delicious soup and very easy to make. I added a little garlic powder and a bit more salt as well. We are gluten free so I used corn starch instead of flour. Great recipe!!!

    At first I was puzzled by the title of the recipe. Cappuccino because it was served in an espresso cup but it is actually a cream of mushroom -- appetizer size. It was delicious and creamy. I would make it again! Great for chilly entertaining nights!
