Fresh Mushroom is the Key

When it comes to making mushroom soup, selecting the freshest mushrooms is key for achieving a flavorful result. Fresh mushrooms add a rich and earthy flavor to the soup, as well as a delightful texture that you can’t get with canned or dried varieties. And because fresh mushrooms are full of nutrients like B vitamins and minerals such as selenium and potassium, they also contribute to your overall health.

Mushroom Variety

The three types of Asian mushrooms used in this recipe—shiitake, white beech and enoki—each have their own unique flavor profiles that come together to create an incredibly tasty experience. Shiitakes are known for their meaty texture and subtle smoky flavor while white beech mushrooms bring a delicate sweetness to the mix. Enokis are prized for their crunchy texture and mild flavor which adds yet another dimension to the taste of the soup.

Shopping fresh Mushroom

When shopping for fresh mushrooms, look for specimens that are firm, evenly colored and free from blemishes or mold. Avoid buying pre-sliced mushrooms since they tend to lose moisture more quickly than whole ones, resulting in a less flavorful soup. Also, keep in mind that freshly harvested wild mushrooms will have even more intense flavors than those found at supermarkets or greenmarkets, so if you’re able to source some of those it would certainly be worth it!

Instead, sauté them in butter or oil until just lightly golden brown before adding them into the broth along with other ingredients like onions garlic and herbs. This will help ensure that all of their wonderful flavors come through in the finished dish.
