Mushrooms, Sherry and Thyme

This soup is a tasty and comforting way to stay warm when the weather gets cold outside! The savory blend of mushrooms and onion with thyme and broth mixed in with hearty rice makes this dish easy to prepare and great tasting.We’ve got a secret ingredient up our sleeves that helps to enrich the overall flavor of the dish, it’s sherry!

What is sherry?

Sherry is a heavy and sweet wine made from special white grapes found in Spain. It is meant to be sipped in small glasses as a dessert wine. However, it is commonly added to creamy soups to give it a delicious finishing touch. It pairs especially well with mushrooms and onions for a surprisingly savory taste that will make your dish restaurant worthy.

If you get yourself a small bottle but don’t know what to do with the rest, save it and toss it into an Asian Stir Fry or Chicken and Ginger Fried Rice. The sherry is an amazing ingredient to have on hand to add just a hint of great flavor.
