Amy’s Mushroom Bisque with Porcini Review

Amy's Mushroom Bisque with Porcini

When it’s cold or rainy outside, we always appreciate a nice bowl of soup. Whether we eat it on its own or with a salad or sandwich, there’s something very comforting about a hot liquid meal. We also enjoy mushrooms, so when we combine mushrooms with soup, we’ve got ourselves a great rainy-day meal. The Amy’s Kitchen Mushroom Bisque with Porcini is exactly the sort of soup we’re talking about.

Obviously, this soup isn’t frozen. Why are we reviewing it on Freezer Meal Frenzy? We’re big fans of the Amy’s Kitchen frozen food line and occasionally enjoy non-frozen products as well. We’ve already tried quite a few Amy’s soups and have been pretty impressed with them overall. We figured it couldn’t hurt to weigh in on yet another non-frozen soup from the Amy’s Kitchen brand.

So anyway, this is a pretty basic canned soup, and as such, it’s incredibly easy to make. Since the can has a pull tab, you don’t even need a can opener for this one. You can just pop it right open and heat it over the stove or in the microwave. According to the label, it needs to be heated in the microwave for two minutes, but we found heating it for an extra 30 seconds yielded better results.

A bisque is traditionally a creamy soup, but we were still surprised by just how creamy and comforting this soup is. It’s not just the butter and cream that gives this a velvety texture. All of the ingredients, from the organic mushrooms to the leeks to the arborio rice come together to create a dish that’s simple and soothing but still indulgent. It reminds us of risotto, which is another of our favorite comfort foods.

We usually wind up adding some seasoning to canned soups, but we thought this soup was perfect straight out of the can. It’s a little low in calories and protein — just 180 calories and 4 grams of protein per can — but you could easily bulk it up with a meatless sausage. It would also be delicious with a grilled cheese sandwich! Of course, if you’re planning on eating a smaller lunch so that you can indulge before dinner, this soup is a great way to treat yourself.

Amy’s Mushroom Bisque with Porcini might be a perfect rainy-day meal, but it’s too good to save for a rainy day. We’d gladly eat it any day of the week, no matter what the weather looks like. It may not be the most filling soup that Amy’s makes, but it’s definitely in the running for most delicious.
