Wild Mushroom Soup

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 174


2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
2 cups sliced oyster mushrooms
2 cups sliced portobello mushrooms
2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
1 small red onion diced
1 small yellow onion diced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh epazote or 1 teaspoon dried (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
6 1/2 cups Vegetable Broth
1 small leek thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped shallot
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives for garnish
2 ounces enoki mushrooms thrimmed, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put the cremini, oyster, portobello, and shiitake mushrooms, half of the red and yellow onions, the optional epazote, parsley, thyme, and 1/2 cup of the broth in a large bowl and stir to combine. Transfer to the lined baking sheet, arrange in a single layer, and bake for 12 minutes, until the mushrooms start to release their juices.

Put the remaining red and yellow onions and the leek, shallot, and garlic in a large dry pot over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and use the spoon to loosen any bits that are stuck to the bottom of the pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture is more deeply browned, 5 to 10 minutes longer. Add the mushroom mixture and any juices left on the baking sheet (it’s all mushroom flavor, so don’t waste it) and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining 6 cups of the broth. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer. Decrease the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Serve hot, garnished with the chives and enoki mushrooms.

Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Wild Mushroom Soup will keep for 3 days. Reheat and garnish just before serving.

Note: If you prefer, this soup can be made with only one kind of mushroom. Using a variety, however, adds a bit more interest and substance.
