Mushroom Cashew Bisque

 
Mushroom Cashew Bisque

This creamy and earthy rich mushroom soup gets it's earthiness from shitake mushrooms and rich creaminess from cashews instead of cream for a healthier result than a cream based bisque. It sacrifices the fat to deliver flavor.

This bisque is thick and rich, full of flavorful mushrooms. Personally I'm not all that fond of cream thickened soups so using the cashews in this recipe to thicken the soup was a great idea. Will definitely make this again.
