Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium leeks
  • 1/2 lb oyster or trumpet mushrooms Sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups vegetable or chicken broth

Instructions
 

  • Wash the leeks thoroughly and slice them into 1/4″ thick rounds, avoiding the green parts.

  • Add the sliced mushrooms and continue to sauté until the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms begin to brown.
  • Pour in the wine and boil for 1 minute. Add the broth, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve the soup as is, or use a handheld immersion blender to blend to the desired consistency. For added texture, save some browned mushroom pieces to top the soup.

Notes

Tips:
  • Ensure the leeks are well cleaned to remove any grit.
  • Experiment with different types of mushrooms for varied flavors.
  • For a richer taste, use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth.
  • Adjust the consistency by adding more or less broth as desired.
  • Omit the dry wine if you don’t like alcohol; you can use extra broth or a splash of lemon juice instead.
