- Serving size: 1 soup plate full, about 1 3/4 cups
- In a pot, bring the dried porcini mushrooms and vegetable broth to a boil. Remove from the heat and let steep for at least an hour. The longer you let the broth sit, the more the mushroom flavor will intensify.
- Strain the mushrooms, setting the broth aside for later.
- Chop the mushrooms and set aside.
- In a large pot over medium to high heat, melt the butter.
- Add the shallots and sliced cremini mushrooms.
- Cook until the mushrooms have browned nicely, stirring occasionally. This should take about 6 minutes.
- Deglaze with the sherry.
- After about a minute, add the broth, the chopped porcini mushrooms and the spices.
- Bring to a simmer, then add the cream.
- Cook for about 5 minutes or until the soup has reached the desired consistency.
- Optionally blend the soup.
- You can store the soup in an airtight container, about 5 days in the fridge and up to 6 months in the freezer. For best results, thaw the soup overnight in the fridge. Then reheat for a couple of minutes in a pot on the stovetop.
