Hearty Mushroom Soup

As much a savory as a soup, this can serve as lunch or dinner for 4 people--with lots of salad, lots more crusty rye bread, and the rest of the wine.

Garnish: 4 slices of caraway rye, baked until dry toast; 1/4 cup each of freshly grated swiss, parmesan, and cheddar cheeses

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and saute until tender--about 5 minutes. Turn up the heat, add mushrooms, and saute for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the stock, parsley, tomato paste or slivers, garlic, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce and add wine. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

When ready to serve, put one slice of rye toast in each bowl, sprinkle with cheeses, then ladle soup over all. Top with fresh chopped parsley.
