Shiitake Oyster Mushroom Soup
This Shiitake Oyster Mushroom Soup is a delicious soup full of flavor and delicious ingredients. This soup has a lot of umami, that savoriness that is characteristic of broths and cooked meats – you know umami, the classic combination of slightly sweet, sour, bitter and salty all at the same time!
To make this soup, saute garlic and leeks. Add shiitake mushrooms and oyster mushrooms to the pan and cook. Set 2-3 tablespoons aside for garnishing the soup upon serving.
Blend the mushroom and leek mixture with stock, two of the bacon strips, the sour cream, parsley and thyme. Use 2 cups of stock if you want it to be quite rich and thick; use 3 cups if you desire a thinner and less intense soup. Secure the lid on the container. Blend and add the cognac. To serve, pour into individual bowls and top with the remaining strip of crumbled bacon and reserved mushroom mixture. Enjoy immediately!
