So how did I grow to love mushrooms so much that they ended up the star ingredient of this simple soup? I think it started when a group of coworkers decided we should share a mushroom and caramelized onion pizza at a local restaurant. Not wanting to complain, I took a bite of the small slice I had taken - but the paper-thin slices of cremini complemented the sweet unctuousness of the onions so well, they began to prove their culinary mettle.

I decided on a super-light breading, a quick high-heat fry, and a sprinkle of sea salt. These crispy little beauties look like baby onion rings, but have the crisp of a potato chip and a bright, fresh flavor that no bulb onion can match. Fried leek rings would make a great snack to go with a round of St. Paddy's Day pints - but make several, because they're delicious and may disappear quickly.
