Porcini Soup

It is getting cold outside! I mean really cold. Is there anything better than a nice bowl of hot soup waiting for you at home after a rainy afternoon walk in the forest? Probably not, unless a cup of hot chocolate...or a chocolate soufflé that I served for my guests at the weekend.

50 g dried porcini
650 ml chicken stock
250 g potato
2 shallots

1 tablespoon butter
2 thyme spirgs

150 ml cream
salt, pepper

Soak porcini in chicken stock and let it stand for an hour. Dice shallots, potato and stew in butter for about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock with the soaked porcini, thyme spirgs and cook it for 20
minutes. Purée it together with the cream and season with salt and pepper.

Finally a recipe for soup with dried porcini. I never got it well when I tried it following gut feeling, even Maggi's soup was better than mine. Will try it, definitely.
