Alpine Mushroom Broth

March 8, 2012

Enjoy this incredibly light and yet so rich broth by yourself or as a special treat to share with friends. Simple to make and yet so rewarding with layers of flavor.  I make this often for myself but many friends always ask when they will be invited for second serving.  Enjoy this broth that is both lush and a beautiful beginning to tempt your palette.

    I’ve made this soup several times since I found the directions on the package in October. I’ve used different combinations of fresh mushrooms, straw or oyster canned mushrooms, and dried mushrooms. Hint, when using part dried mushrooms, swap the soaking liquid for stock or broth. There are a couple individual servings stored in the freezer right now.

        I thank you/I should have thought to do that sooner. I think I will do that with my ‘onion’ soup recipes too.
