Hungarian Mushroom Soup
Yum! For years I have paged through the Moosewood Cookbook. for specific recipes and ideas. I have three different Moosewood cookbooks but hadn't looked at this one lately.
My friend, Deb, has been talking about mushroom soup the last couple times I have seen her. She plays poker with a group of men...and one of them got a mushroom growing kit for Christmas, and he served mushroom soup at a recent poker game. I knew the recipe was from Moosewood, but I forgot to ask which cookbook and which mushroom soup recipe. I found this one...and it's good. I will check with her to see if there is another recipe I should try. But, I am happy to stay with this one. Very very happy to stay with this recipe since it was delicious!
I used water instead of stock. And, I did not have parsley to sprinkle on the top.
I posted the link to a very similar recipe. The only difference I could find that my recipe didn't call for soy sauce. I can't vouch for this recipe with the soy sauce, but I highly recommend it without. I bought a baguette and Parmesan cheese thinking I would need both to get buy in on this recipe. Although both these ingredients added to the meal, I think all would have been fine without it as well.
I noticed when I was at Sendiks today that they are selling the mushroom growing kits. So maybe that's hip and trendy in the food world. I just used the baby bella mushrooms that were on sale. I like the idea of growing mushrooms in my basement but think the yield would be too high. I think I really want a friend to start growing mushrooms and giving me the extras!
