    And not cream of mushroom either.<br>
    <br>
    1 lb mixed mushrooms (I used Portabello, Shitake and Crimini)<br>
    1 cup chopped shallots<br>
    1 bunch green onions<br>
    1 tsp fresh thyme<br>
    1 cup dry sherry<br>
    4 cups chicken broth<br>
    <br>
    Saute shallots and green onions in butter until lightly briowned, about 4 minutes. I like to add a little chopped garlic too. The green onions are optional - I just like a little color in my food.<br>
    <br>
    Add mushrooms and thyme and brown lightly for about 10 mminutes.<br>
    <br>
    Add sherry and bring to a boil.<br>
    <br>
    Add broth and bring to a boil. (I used low sodium broth.)<br>
    <br>
    Simmer for a few minutes.<br>
    <br>
    Serve.<br>
    <br>
    Enjoy.<br>
    <br>
    The problem with cream of mushroom is that it's too heavy, and hides too much of the mushroom flavor. This recipe is very simple and easy to make, and can be altered to suit. Shallots are what's called for, but other onions can be substituted.<br>
    <br>
    The above amount can be made in a large electric skillet. Works for us, since we haven't finished our kitchen remodel.

    I have a recipe that is very similar to Brians but I usually make it in the spring when the Morels are on. Mushrooms are very healthy for you. My wife takes a mushroom supplement ( she is like Jacks wife, hates fresh or any kind of mushroom) She went to the doc and he was very puzzled at how her Cholestral, Blood pressure and enzimes were down because she quit taking all her meds. When she told him about the mushroom supplements, he was not surpised.

    Yes, I went out and picked all of those mushrooms. From the produce case at Safeway.

    I just completed my version of Brian's soup. I did however add Morels and Wild
    rice. And ample amounts of each! Very tasty.

    Thanks for Sharing,
    Gunnerx

    Me too. I kind of mixed up the order of preparation but it survived that and produced a fine soup, strong on mushroom which, as Brian d' Oregon says, can often be blunted in "creme of" recipes. Thanks for the suggestion; I'll lay some by for the winter days I don't want to venture out.

    Halfmile's breakfast is missing a lump of Corned Beef Hash and a couple of Sausage links or patties. Possibly a little scrapple just for effect! :) My cholesterol jumped fifty points just looking at the picture.

    The Mushroom Soup is on the menu in the near future. I never trusted the "Creme" soups, since I could't always tell what all of the lumps were.

    The mushroom soup is coming. I will have to trust store mushrooms since I don't want to hallucinate or die. Never saw Crimini types around here, but will try something else. I think having mixed types will tease the palate better than just a single variety.


    Good stuff, Brian.
