Phew! I am looking out the window at the gray sky. The weather is damp and cold. Right now, I am visiting Denmark, my home country, and there is somewhat of a temperature contrast here compared to the sunny warmth of the Philippines. So a warming soup is just right. . . .
This soup is filled with healthy greens, and the dark colors combined with mushrooms made me think of the deep pine forests of the North. The rich walnut cream makes for a comforting dish, perfect for cuddling up in front of a crackling fire. . . .
All the vegetables are frozen because that is what my grandma had, and it makes this soup a piece of
cake soup to make when you don't feel like standing in a cold kitchen very long. This soup is delicious with some good homemade bread (the oven helps heat up the kitchen – mmm) like Whole Wheat Bread Squares topped with some savory spread like this Soy Pate.
