i tried my hand at making cream of mushroom soup last weekend. i have a fantastic potato soup recipe, and so i decided to see what i could find for mushroom soup. i followed this recipe fairly closely.
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chopped shiitake mushrooms
1 cup chopped portobello mushrooms
2 shallots, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 cup half-and-half
salt and pepper to taste
i used some white mushrooms, baby bellas, and a package of dried wild mushrooms i had leftover from thanksgiving. i also added some parsley.
whilit was yummy, it’s not quite to the caliber that my awesome potato soup recipe is at. i might have to do some more digging and see if i can find any other recipes that are awesome.
