From Alpha Bits' cafe located in Mapleton, Oregon. This soup reminded me of a simplified version of Thai yellow curry. I played with some of the ingredients, added a couple things and cleaned up the directions. You can use any kind of mushroom-for us it's usually cremini or oyster mushrooms. However for this soup recipe we tried Oregon harvested 'hedgehog' mushrooms. Fast and easy to make! Note: [some] types of curry paste contain ghee (butter). Yield with original recipes says this serves four but I think it's closer to two servings-perhaps three servings at most. And in conclusion-after preparing this soup I decided next time to add a protein: 1 cup firm tofu cut up into small cubes and sauteed with the carrots, onions, etc. For the carnivores, add 1 cup cooked chicken, cubed when you add the green beans and asparagus. I did however add a scoop of hot cooked white jasmine rice to the soup just before serving.
