I wonder just how many of us pay any attention to the packaging when we open up a product. More often than not, there is a recipe on that packaging and, since the goal is to sell more of that particular product, the recipe is generally very good. I put this theory to the test this evening and made a bowl of mushroom soup using the recipe on the back of the Monterey dried mushroom package. After his second bowlful, my husband decreed that it was the best mushroom soup he’d ever eaten. I had to agree. It is earthy and delicious, with a complex taste uncommon to most mushroom soups. Give this recipe a try, and be sure to look carefully at the packaging on products that you buy before tossing it away, you may be in for a very pleasant surprise.
