I had a wild mushroom soup at a japanese restaurant near my house that was so great. Unfortunately the service at that place is awful so I just couldn't bring myself to go back. This soup was even better than theirs and now I can satisfy my craving anytime!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 12 cups dashi (see my dashi recipe)
  • 16 ounces wild mushrooms (assorted, I like enoki, shitake, crimini)
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 3 green onions, sliced into rings
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  1. Clean the mushrooms with a dry brush or a cloth to remove dirt.
  2. Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  3. Melt the butter in a large saute pan on medium to high heat; add the mushrooms.
  4. Cook until mushrooms are 1/3 of their original size (5-10 minutes depending on your choice of mushroom).
  5. Add the dashi; simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. Season with soy sauce and salt.
  7. Ladle into bowls, garnish with green onion and serve.
