Marie says, “This soup is my personal answer to canned cream of mushroom soup. It’s an elegant first course or a base in recipes using cream of mushroom soup. I also make this without tofu as a base for risotto.” For those who are soy sensitive, substitute 8 ounces of heavy cream for the tofu.



Add olive oil to a large skillet. Sauté onion and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes. Add fresh crimini mushrooms and celery and sauté until mushrooms are quite soft.

Rehydrate dried mushrooms in 1 cup boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove mushrooms and chop, reserving liquid for the soup. (Strain out any sandy sediment.)

Deglaze pan with red wine. Add the chopped dried mushrooms and soaking liquid, and cook down for 5 minutes.

Blend together mushroom broth, sea kelp powder and tofu. Add, with bay leaf, to cooked mushrooms and allow flavors to marry, 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove bay leaf before serving, and add fresh thyme and a squeeze of lemon juice. This soup freezes well without the tofu.
