Here is an interesting recipe I found on the German website Römische Weinstraße. It is called “Weinsuppe mit Pilzen”, which is wine soup with mushrooms. I have not tried it yet but if anyone does give it a go I would be interested in knowing how it tastes.
Ingredients (for 4 people)
- 20 grams butter
- 250 grams fresh mushrooms
- 500 ml chicken broth
- 250 ml cream
- 250 ml Mosel Riesling
- 2-3 teaspoons starch (such as corn flour)
- Salt, pepper, nutmeg, chopped fresh herbs
Slice the mushrooms and fry in butter. Meanwhile, combine the chicken broth and cream in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for a few minutes to reduce. Whisk the starch into the wine and add to the broth/cream mixture, stirring continuously. Simmer, stirring regularly, until thickened. Add the sautéed mushrooms and season the soup with the chopped herbs, salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.
