Cream of Crimini

Every other month, we get a delivery of various foodstuffs from Azure Standard, which is a company in Oregon that has mostly organic foods and other health items.  I had been mail ordering from them for about 15 years, but recently they have expanded so far south that I can now get a delivery from their truck route.  This service now allows me to order the fresh produce, meats, dairy products, etc. that could not be sent through mail order.  BO-nanza!

 

These beautiful crimini mushrooms, above, are greatly anticipated with each delivery.  I try to always have a quart of super thick chicken bone broth on hand so that when we arrive home from picking up the goods, I can start right in to make this glorious cream of mushroom soup.

We eat our fill on this first day, and then have it again on a subsequent day.  There is usually enough left over from those two meals to provide a mushroom “gravy” for an additional meal of some kind.

And yes, I get that delicious salad from them, too.  The herb toast is from my homemade sourdough French loaf.

Sadly, this yummy meal is just a memory – to be repeated in mid-September.

    This soup looks really very delicious. What else do you put inside except broth, also cream? Have a nice day, virtual hugs, Mitza

      For some reason, your comment went into spam, Mitza. Not much else – mushrooms, broth, milk, flour, salt, pepper. I’ll pm you with what I did to make it. ;->

      I’ve always *liked* it, but fell head over heels in love with it when I tasted it at a restaurant in Washington State at Lake Crescent Lodge.

      Tried to duplicate it unsuccessfully for ten years, and then tried the crimini. That was the missing piece to the puzzle.
