I saw some oyster mushrooms at Costco and wanted to try and make a mushroom soup like one that you would get at a nice restaurant. I'm really happy with the results! If you're using this as an appetizer, it would probably be good for 6 smaller bowls. Enjoy!

  1. Heat broth and add dried mushrooms. Set aside and soak for 20 minutes.
