Shiitake & Button Mushroom Soup

If the words “mushroom soup” conjure up a can of condensed soup that your grandmother poured into various casseroles as a sauce, do yourself the favor of seeing mushroom soup through new eyes. Made fresh mushrooms, with a delicate balance of herbs and savory veggies, mushroom soup is a wonderful side, and yes, sauce, that you’ll be delighted to welcome into your cooking routine.

Tip: To use this recipe in place of canned mushroom soup, puree using an immersion blender.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 3 shallots, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Marsala wine
  • 1 lb. white mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh thyme
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ lb. shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Cook the shallots until slightly softened but not browned (3-4 minutes). Add the wine and cook until just evaporated (2 minutes).
  2. Add the white mushrooms, shiitake stems, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms release their liquid (10 minutes).
  3. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a skillet over medium. Cook the shiitake mushrooms until softened and lightly browned (4-5 minutes).
  5. Serve the soup topped with fried shiitakes and parsley.
