This is one of those super simple soups that make us feel warm and cozy on a chilly evening.
Amounts vary by how much soup you are making.
Crimini, Use only one kind or vary your soup with several kinds
Herbs : Tarragon
Use one or several. I like tarragon especially, but the Others are equally good. Whatever is available & Rosemary, Fresh Mint
Lightly sauté garlic in olive oil.
Add sliced mushrooms
Add tomatoes to cover the mushrooms
Cook gently for several minutes
Add hot water to a soup consistency you like ( aprox the same amount of tomatoes)
Simmer for about thirty minutes
Add more herbs at the finish
Season with salt & pepper to taste
* When using dried porcini, wash carefully and soak until the mushrooms are softened. Cut into small pieces. Strain the mushrooms , reserving the broth and add to soup.
