Recipe Ingredients for Paprika Mushroom Soup

1 oz. dried mushrooms (such as porcini, morels, or chanterelles)
2 cups chicken broth
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, halved and sliced
1 lb. fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. paprika
6 tbsp fat free Sour cream

Recipe Directions for Paprika Mushroom Soup

  1. Put dried mushrooms in a medium bowl and pour 2 cup boiling water over them. Let sit until mushroom are very soft, about 30 minutes. Lift mushrooms out of soaking liquid, chop, and set aside. Transfer liquid to a large measuring cup, being careful to leave behind and discard the grit at the bottom of the bowl (pour through a fine-mesh sieve or layers of cheesecloth if the liquid is noticeably gritty). Add enough broth to equal 4 cups and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot heat oil and onions over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, about 3 minutes.

  3. Increase heat to high and add mushrooms and 1 tsp salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms have given off their liquid, about 5 minutes. Add paprika and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add reserved soaked mushrooms and stir to combine.

  4. Add reserved liquid and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook until mushrooms are tender to the bite and flavors meld, about 15 minutes.

  5. Add salt to taste. Serve hot, with a dollop of sour cream, if you like.
