Gold Cap Stropharia And Portobello Soup

Uses Stropharia Ambigua and Agaricus Brunnescens (or A. Bisporus or other non-aromatic Agaricus mushrooms, or even Russula, Slippery Jack or any mild flavored mushroom).

Gold Cap Stropharia has a strong earthy, foresty odor, and a flavor that can be overpowering if used incorrectly, so please follow the amounts listed. It may also cause digestive upset if over-consumed, so please do not increase the amount per serving. Cooking time for the Stropharia is also critical, because it requires a longer cooking time than some mushrooms, both to reduce chances of digestive upset, and to meld the flavors so you don't get bits of overpowering flavor from it.

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 Gold Cap Stropharia caps, diced
  • 1 medium sized Portobello mushroom, or 3 Crimini mushrooms, diced
  • 1/2 medium sized onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 chicken breast, cubed (may be raw)
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • Salt to taste

Toss it all into a sauce pot, bring to a simmer, cover and turn heat down. Keep it simmering for about an hour (if water level drops too much, add more). If you use pre-cooked chicken, please do not reduce cooking time, the mushrooms NEED this much time to cook. The easiest way to do this is to start it in a crock pot in the morning and let it cook all day.

Serve with toasted bread, or fresh baked bread.

Makes 2 servings.
