I love fall except for the part where it turns into winter. In the meantime, I am going to enjoy this wonderful and light creamy porcini mushroom soup because it taste nothing like winter.
Ingredients
  • 3 Oz Dried Porcini Mushrooms (Re-hydrated)
  • 1 Chopped Onion
  • 1 Chopped Carrot
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 1/2 Cups Mushroom Liquid Reserved
  • 17 Oz Chicken Stock
  • 3 Teaspoons Chicken Better Than Bouillon
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 1 Can Light Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Cream
  • 1 Large Tablespoon Dried Parsley
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Tumeric
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • Pepper To Taste
Preparation
  1. Re-hydrate the mushrooms, drain and reserve the liquid in a bowl. The sediment should fall to the bottom of the bowl.
  2. Lightly pat dry the mushrooms with a towel.
  3. Chop the onion and carrot into fairly small pieces.
  4. Add the olive oil, mushrooms, onion and carrot into a large pot. Cook on medium high until onions and carrots begin to soften.
  5. Add the stock, 2 1/2 cups of the reserve liquid (skimming off the top so the sediment stays out of the soup), the Better Than Bouillon and the tomato paste.
  6. Bring to a boil and cook about 15 minutes. 
  7. Reduce heat and add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a light boil and simmer another 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and use an immersion blender until smooth. Return to heat on low for a few minutes.
  9. Cool slightly and serve with sour cream.

Hints
  • This has a light mushroom flavor. If you want more depth, I would suggest doubling the amount of mushrooms or using a couple of different varieties. I think just about any dried mushroom would do.

  • Can also be made with vegetable stock.

This is wonderful!! It was so easy! I doubled it and it all went. I tried it with asparagus that was great too. I also tried it with spinach, not so good. But the mushroom soup is the best I've ever had. I am a poor cook and this was so easy!!

The recipe of this Light Creamy Mushroom Soup is so healthy and I like to try this as I found it so good and tasty from its ingredients and the way you make it. A lot of the recipes are so good and it is always best to try the recipe if the ingredients are the same we like the most.

I can eat all if it would be stuffed with a mushroom sauce!
