This soup is OUT OF CONTROL GOOD!!! We used Lion's Mane to replace the crabmeat, which I found on the clearance rack at Lemon St. Market for $1 (SCORE!) We got the inspiration after going to Bistro Barbaret for breakfast, they had these incredible French baguettes and I couldn't leave without one. George suggested we try making a bisque with the lion's mane to pair with the bread for dinner.
We all need a staple Balsamic dressing in our pantry. I'm not a fan of store bought dressings, as they typically use a blend of vegetable oils and water instead of simply using a nice Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Making it yourself improves quality, saves you money, and allows you to get creative!
