An Andreas Viestad recipe, one of my favorite chefs! This one is from his television cooking show, and has a deliciously different flavor. If you can't find fresh porcini mushrooms, the recipe does allow for a pound of white (button) mushrooms plus 2 ounces of dried porcinis. And don't skip the delicious garnish!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium pot, bring vegetable broth to a boil. Add mushrooms (all fresh or a combo of dried and fresh), peppercorns, bay leaves and the cinnamon stick. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, skimming off any foam that forms on the surface.
  2. Line a colander or sieve with cheesecloth (I use a coffee filter sometimes) and strain the consomme into another pot, pressing gently on the mushrooms with a spoon to extract as much of the liquid as possible. Discard mushrooms and spices.
  3. Reheat the consomme and season to taste with salt. Pour into bowls and garnish with a couple of tablespoons of cream per portion, sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
