A recipe for a garnish may seem odd but this one should be committed to memory! Ready in a snap, you can use this clever topping to elevate a simple soup for a dinner party, dress-up leftover soup for another meal that week or top crispy bread for a terrific last-minute side to your favorite soup. The umami of the mushrooms and creamy tang of the goat cheese can enhance pureed vegetable soups such as butternut, tomato, or sweet potato. You can't beat it for time, versatility and only 4 ingredients.
