  • 12 oz mushrooms (I used 8 oz crimini and 4 oz post-soaked weight porcinis)
  • 1/2 cup shallot minced (about 1 large)
  • 1 tsp Herbs de Provance (this is just a mixture of savory herbs; you could use thyme and a little rosemary)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 TB sherry
  • 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • Cream
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chives
  • Oil and butter for cooking

Step 1

Finely dice your shallots.


Step 2

Chop half your mushrooms coarsely. And the rest finely. If you're using dried mushrooms, soak for 20 minutes in enough hot water to cover. After mushrooms are re-hydrated, chop finely but strain and save the mushroom water - add when you add the broth.


Step 3

Sweat shallots and coarsely chopped mushrooms in a medium to large pot in 1 TB olive oil and 1 TB butter over low heat until it starts to caramelize a bit.


Step 4

Add the remaining mushrooms and herbs; cook for another 10-15 minutes until mushrooms have released their liquid and everything has cooked down a bit.


Step 5

Add sherry and stir and cook until sherry has evaporated. Add broth and let simmer for 15-30 minutes. Add another 2 TB sherry and mix to combine.


Step 6

Ladle into soup bowls, top with a bit of cream and chives. Serve with toasted baguette slices.

This was an excellent recipe. I made a few changes—I use fresh tarragon which is growing like crazy in my garden. I also used chicken stock, due to preference. Before adding the stock, I added about 2 Tbsp. of flour and cooked it for 2 minutes, then whisked in the stock. In the end, I added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream since I’m a fan of cream soup. It was a hit!
Thank you for posting this recipe. What a winner!
