A yummy soup, one of what I like to call an essence soup. This one is pure umami delight.
Mushroom essence soup, to be served as an appetizer.
1/2 lb. cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 cups water
2 tbs. soy sauce
1/4 ts. ground ginger
Place mushrooms into the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove mushrooms and save for other recipes. Add soy sauce and ginger. Taste and add more ginger, or soy sauce to taste. You can put some diced mushrooms in if you feel it necessary. This soup is a great appetizer, or is very good as an au jus with roast beef, I love it as a pure essence soup, as an appetizer. It just wets the appetite for the main course, without filling you up. Enjoy.
