Ingredients Mushroom essence

  • 25 g dried porcini mushrooms
  • 25 g dried chanterelles
  • 600 g mushrooms
  • 200 g onions
  • 100 g celery
  • 100 g celeriac
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 l vegetable stock (from scraps)
  • 100 ml dry sherry
  • 50 ml truffle juice
  • sunflower oil
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • black pepper
  • salt

Preparation Mushroom essence

Bring the vegetable stock briefly to the boil and pour it over the dried porcini mushrooms and the chanterelles, soak the mushrooms in the liquid and leave to cool again. In the meantime, dice the onions and celeriac and fry them in a deep pan with a little sunflower oil until they turn dark, add the finely chopped mushrooms and garlic, and sauté until almost no fluid is left running out of the mushrooms and the celeriac. Pour the sherry over the vegetables, add the celery, herbs and spices and pour in the cooled vegetable/mushroom stock. Slowly bring everything to the boil over a low heat and let it stand for 40 mins. Remove the vegetables from the broth (reserve some of the chanterelles) and pour through a coffee filter. Reduce the mushroom broth to the desired thickness and season to taste with a little salt and the truffle juice. Tip Of course the soup can also be prepared without truffles.
