Smoked mushroom soup…

May 8th, 2014

On our courses we almost always smoke mushrooms and I always remind people not to think just of the (wonderful) flavour of a smoked mushroom, but also what smoked mushrooms would bring to a casserole, paella, omelette etc – and soup.  And yet I had never made smoked mushroom soup.  It is FANTASTIC!  I finally got round to it – I can’t really give a recipe as I don’t work like that but basically I used about 200g of cold-smoked mushrooms, a leek, a clove of garlic, a litre (or so) of chicken stock and added thyme and seasoning.  Once simmered for a while I whizzed it up in the blender, checked seasoning and added a bit too much cream.  Lovely.

Sorry there isn’t a picture of the soup, it didn’t last long enough to pose for the camera…
