    This soup made with a trio of portobello, crimini and oyster mushrooms get its creaminess from potato and just a little cream. Thyme, tarragon and oregano complement the mushrooms beautifully.

Add remaining butter, portobello mushrooms, baby bella mushrooms, oyster mushrooms and tarragon; cook and stir until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
    2. Stir chicken stock, potato, thyme and oregano into the pot. Bring to the boil; let soup simmer until potato is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
    3. Remove soup from heat and puree with a hand-held immersion blender until smooth.
    4. Return soup to heat and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in cream. Season with salt and pepper.


    Substitute 2 1/2 tablespoons dried thyme for the fresh thyme if preferred.

    ** My picture is the dark soup with the whisk in it** I made a few changes to this recipe and it came out amazing. First off, are used wild mushrooms that I forged and dried from earlier this year. Are used golden chanterelles, Cinnabar red chanterelles, and hen-of-the-woods. I also only sprinkled a little bit of oregano no because I wasn’t so sure this was the right herb for this dish. I added a dash of Cayanne pepper. I also added a very large spoon of puréed pumpkin. At the end I took a little bit in 2 cups and add heavy cream to one and sour cream to the other. Both were very good with the flavor but the heavy cream with a little bit better. I ultimately use the sour cream because I needed to have a cream for whipping cream today.  -  22 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
