Dried Mushroom Soup

Top Review by oelkesm

I give this a five for the idea. I wanted to make mushroom soup and only had dried mushrooms. I had chicken stock on hand, so I boiled the dried (shiitake) mushrooms, celery and minced onion in the broth for about ten minutes. I added salt, pepper, a little ground thyme and cayenne and a splash of red wine vinegar. Then I put it in my vitamix and pureed the batch. This step let me skip the flour. I poured it all back into the pan, added about 1/2 cup of heavy cream and voila! Yummy mushroom soup!

  3. Stir the flour into the onion-celery mixture, add the water and crushed mushrooms. Simmer until the mushrooms are tender, (about 5 minutes).
