A lightened up, vegetarian, gluten free delicious mushroom soup!
Put the dried mushrooms in a bowl and add 1 cup warm water and soak for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile in a large skillet over medium heat saute the onion, carrots and celery in 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove veggies from pan and set aside.
Heat the remaining butter and olive oil in the skillet and turn up the heat to medium high. Add the mushrooms and tarragon and saute until just tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
Drain the dried mushrooms through a sieve to catch any grit and reserve the liquid. Chop the mushrooms up finely and add them to the pot.
Add the onion and mushroom mixtures into a large pot. Add the chicken stock and the reserved mushroom liquid. Bring to boil then lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Adjust seasoning to taste.
Add some of the hot liquid stir it into the cornstarch to make a loose paste. Whisk it into the soup. Add that and the cream or milk into the pot and heat through. Serve.
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
