Muffy the Velvet Mushroom Soup & Friend - Longmeadow Farm
41 mins (prep 11, cooking 30)
15 ingredients
4 servings
"The Valley" below our town used to house a mushroom farm for many years. We would all assemble on a early Saturday morning and go quietly and cultivate these mushrooms. Mushrooms are sweet aren't they? I don't mean sweet as in sugary, I mean sweet as in adorable. No matter the mushroom, the size, the build, the color, they are plain cute. Which brings up the reason for the thoughtful little name of this homey soup. "Muffy" is the name we called mushrooms when we picked them. The little button "Muffy" is a succulent, just swell sorta mushroom. People just don't want to admit it, do they? During the cooling fall when leaves curl and fall, is the best time to pick these little well as using them in this homemade; but easy velvet soup. I do often have dried porcini's in the cupboard, sitting there silently waiting just to be used. I add thinly sliced chicken breast towards the end of cooking time if I am so inclined. Sometimes, I would rather just curl up next to Dennis on our couch, throw a big piece of wood in the woodstove and watch the fall progress with a sip of soup and "Muffy The Mushroom".
