Wild Mushroom Soup

Recipe courtesy of Nancy Josland Dalsin


4 tablespoons butter
2 pounds of any mushrooms, sliced, the wilder the better, I used Shitaki, Portabello, Enoki, Bunashineji and Chantrelle
1 large chopped onion
1/4 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
4 cups of chicken, beef or vegetable stock
1 cup cream
salt and pepper
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley


Melt the butter in a soup pot and add the onions and mushrooms. Sauté for five minutes or so until the mushrooms are wilted and release their moisture.

Add the wine, thyme, bay leaf and flour and reduce the heat to low. Continue cooking for another five minutes or so stirring constantly and scraping the bottom of the pot.

Add the stock and cream and simmer for another 20 minutes or so. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Serve as is or if your prefer, puree all or part of the soup. Sprinkle each bowl with lots of chopped fresh parsley.
