Roasted Mushroom Soup

Author: Canadian Living

Roasting the mushrooms develops their rich, woodsy flavour for this soup, which is wonderful for entertaining. Serve with Sun-Dried Tomato and Herb Focaccia.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cremini mushrooms
  • 4 cups white mushrooms
  • 8 oz shiitake mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoons each salt and pepper
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 potato peeled and cubed
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 4 cups Homemade Chicken Broth recipe
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry optional

Method

Cut cremini and white mushrooms into quarters. Remove stems from shiitakes and reserve for another use; cut caps into quarters. In small roasting pan, toss mushrooms with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each of the thyme, salt and pepper. Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, heat remaining oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, potato and remaining thyme, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add stock, mushrooms and 3 cups (750 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.) Stir in parsley, and sherry (if using).
