Creamy Mushroom Soup with Pine Nuts + Truffle

Fall is the perfect time to start breaking out the soup recipes again. In my cookbook, Eating Purely, I have a lot of my favorites including this one: Creamy Mushroom Soup. The key to making this soup taste absolutely delicious is sautéing the mushrooms for a long time at a low temperature. The flavors emerge, and you are left with a rich, delicious soup. I love adding shiitake mushrooms to the mix as they are a good source of iron and good for your immune system.
