Recipe Ingredients for Tofu "CREAM" OF MUSHROOM SOUP

15 dried shiitake mushrooms
3 c. (720 ml) boiling water
1/2 lb. (225 g) cremini mushrooms
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
3 T. water
1/2 t. marjoram
1/8 tsp thyme
1/8 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp rosemary
3/4 t. salt
1/8 t. ground black pepper
1 T. soy sauce (or Bragg Liquid Aminos)
1 medium carrot, shredded
12 oz. soft silken tofu
1 c. (240 ml) unsweetened soymilk
2 T. cornstarch
2 T. water

Recipe Directions for Tofu "CREAM" OF MUSHROOM SOUP

  1. 1. Put shiitake mushrooms into a medium-size bowl, pour boiling water over them, and soak for 1 hour.

  2. 2. After soaking, snip off stems from shiitakes and discard. Reserve soak water. Put the mushrooms into the food processor and process into small bits. Transfer to a stockpot.

  3. 3. Wash crimini mushrooms and process them along with the onions into small bits in the processor. Transfer them to the stockpot along with minced garlic.

  4. 4. Add olive oil and water to stockpot, and sauté over high heat until softened, about 5 minutes.

  5. 5. Measure soak water. It should measure at least 2 1/4 cups (540 ml). If less, add water to make up the difference. Add soak water to the stockpot along with marjoram, herbs, salt, pepper, Bragg Liquid Aminos, and shredded carrot.

  6. 6. Cream silken tofu and soy milk in the food processor and add to stockpot. Cook over medium high heat until soup begins to simmer. Gently simmer about 5 to 7 minutes to harmonize flavors.

  7. 7. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl or cup and stir to a runny paste. Add to bubbling soup a little at a time until thickened to desired consistency. Adjust seasoning, if needed, and serve. Makes 6 hearty servings.
