They are also easy to clean and cook. Cremini mushrooms can be used instead of the white buttons. They also add some fine flavour to the soup. Don’t be surprised if the colour of the soup is not whitish, it is normal with Cremini mushrooms. Baby Bellas are good alternatives and influence the colour of the soup.

The beef broth, on the other hand, will strip off the white colour. Vegetarians are not left out. You might decide to make a vegetable broth comprising onions, garlic, leeks, shallots and more depending on your taste. However, it will not be as effective as the chicken broth.
