This recipe calls for fresh porcini mushrooms, which can be hard to find; you can substitute other wild mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster, or hen of the woods, or a combination of these. Do not use dried porcini, which are much more pronounced in flavor. Saffron needs to soak in water to soften before being added to the soup, which is pureed for a creamy consistency. Potatoes lend the soup extra body and earthy flavor.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams porcini mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 200 grams potatoes
  • 30 grams butter
  • 700 milliliters vegetable stock
  • 250 milliliters whole milk
  • salt
  • saffron
  • sage

Directions

  1. Wash the mushrooms and cut into pieces.
  2. Peel and dice both the onion and potatoes.
  3. Soak some strands of saffron in water for 20 minutes.
  4. In a large saucepan, melt the butter, add the onion and potatoes and gently brown.
  5. Add the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes.
  6. Add the stock, milk, and salt to taste, cover and bring to the boil on medium heat.
  7. Remove from the heat and add to a blender. Puree until smooth.
  8. Return to the heat for a few minutes, add the saffron and mix.
  9. Serve with a sprinkling of sage.

Saffron is one of the most herbs there is, but the taste that it has is out of this world. This recipe hits the mark on flavor in so many ways. I served this for a work party and everyone kept talking about it. We had several people in the office on diets so a mushroom soup was perfect. I get requests for this recipe all the time. It’s worth the extra time and effort to make this one.
