Funnel Chantarelle Soup with Crunchy Seed Topping

Either with funnel or yellow chantarelles, or any other good mushrooms of your choice, this soup will conquer your guests.



For 4 servings

1 liter of funnel chanterelles, cleaned

25 g of butter

1 banana shallots

2 garlic cloves

1 cup of white wine

6 dl of water

2 tablespoons of chanterelle fund

½ teaspoon of dried thyme

2 cups of whipped cream

1 teaspoon of liquid honey

1 teaspoon of light soy

salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the topping:

1 dl of mixed seeds, like sunflower and pumpkin seeds

2 slices of dry white bread

2 tablespoons of olive oil

sea salt


Chop 4 cups of fresh funnel chantarelles, 1 big shallot and 2 garlic cloves.

Place the mushrooms in a non greased pan and turn on the heat. The mushrooms are going to release water. Let all the water evaporate before adding 3 tbsp of butter and the chopped shallot and garlic.

Cook until crisp on medium heat, about 4-5 minutes. Salt and pepper generously.

Transfer to a large pot and add 1/4 cup of white wine, 2 cups of mushroom or chicken stock and 1/2 a tsp of dried thyme. Let it simmer without a lid for 10 minutes.

Add 2/3 cup heavy cream and transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth.

Adjust the taste with a little honey, soya sauce, salt and pepper.

Tear two thin slices of white country-style bread in tiny pieces. Cook in a little olive oil until crisp. Also, toast some pumpkin and sunflower seeds in a dry pan. Mix with the bread crumbs and sprinkle on some sea salt. Serve the soup in bowls with the crispy topping.
