Slow-Cooker Mushroom soup with Sherry

This creamy, comforting slow-cooker soup has umami flavors from the mushrooms and soy sauce. The dish’s complex texture and eye appeal is achieved by pureeing only a small amount of slow-cooker mushroom broth. If desired, garnish with extra black pepper and chopped fresh rosemary.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour 2 cups boiling water over the porcini mushroom mixture. Allow to stand for 20 minutes. Let the porcini mushrooms drain in a colander. Strain the mushroom broth into a bowl using a cheesecloth-lined strainer. Discard the solids. Mix the cornstarch and soy sauce with the remaining 2 cups of boiling water. Set aside.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil on medium-high. Stir in the shallots, garlic, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Bring to a boil the sherry and simmer for 30 seconds. Turn off the heat.
  • In a 5-quart slow cooker, combine the broth mixture, shallot mix, fresh mushrooms and thyme. Cook on HIGH for approximately 4 hours or until vegetables are tender and flavors have blended. Cook for 20 minutes, then remove the cover. Transfer 2 cups soup to a blender. To allow steam to escape, remove the middle piece from the blender lid and secure it on the blender. To prevent splatters, place a towel over the opening of the blender lid. Blend for about 10 seconds. The soup should be returned to the slow cooker. Stir in the cream. Serve the soup in bowls.
