Available in various types, shapes and sizes, these edible fungi (purely vegetarian!) are a great way to glam-up your dishes. Talking about the types, there are – button, enoki, morel, oyster, shiitake, porcini, chanterelle and portabella. Buy the ones with a firm texture and even colour with tightly-closed caps. If the gills are showing, it is an indication of age and they are probably past their prime.

  • Mushrooms 15 large

  • Butter 1 tablespoon

  • Bay leaf 1

  • Garlic chopped 4-6 cloves

  • Vegetable stock 4 cups

  • White pepper powder 1/4 teaspoon

  • Cream 3/4 cup

  • Milk chilled 2 cups

Method

Step 1

Clean, wash and thickly slice mushrooms. Melt butter in a heavy bottom pan, add bay leaf, onion and garlic and sauté for two to three minutes or till onion becomes translucent. Add mushrooms and sauté for a minute.

Step 2

Add one cup of vegetable stock and cook for five more minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Remove bay leaf. Make puree of the cooked mushrooms. Add the remaining vegetable stock to it.

Step 3

Return to heat and bring it to a boil, add salt and white pepper powder and simmer the soup for two to three minutes. Add the cream and remove from heat.
