Ingredients

  • 1 cup chanterelles chopped, densely packed
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 tsp fresh sage chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp stock powder or bouillon

For serving

  • Salt & black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, fry onions in olive oil until translucent and beginning to brown. Stir frequently.
  • Add chanterelles and cook, until they have shrunk to about half the size. If they don’t give off at least some liquid, add a splash of water.
  • Add herbs and garlic, keep frying for another two minutes. If you want to use some whole mushrooms as garnish, take them out now.
  • Add stock powder, water and coconut milk. Bring to a boil.
  • Blend the soup using a stick blender, until smooth and only small mushroom bits remain.
  • Serve with swirl of coconut milk, a sprinkle of extra herbs and some bread on the side.

Notes

If you haven't got fresh herbs available, use dried herbs.
When chanterelles are stored for a few days, they get a bit dry. We found that adding a splash of water when cooking helps to extract more flavour out of slightly dry mushrooms.
This recipe also works for other edible wild mushrooms you might have found.
