Mushroom Bisque

I have been thinking about what to do with the mushrooms I bought so today I made a mushroom bisque with the following ingredients:

1/2 cup of Unsalted Butter

1 Red Onion Minced

1 Chopped Garlic

Oyster Mushrooms

Shitake Mushrooms

Portabello Mushrooms

Dry Sherry

Oyster Sauce

Soy Sauce Paste

Chopped Basil

Chopped Parsley

1 Pint Heavy Cream

1 Cup of Whole Milk

Black Pepper

Method: First, I minced up the red onion in a food processor, next I chopped up the garlic and browned them with unsalted butter. It was unfortunate that my food processor was not able to mince up the mushrooms, so I obtained about 1 cup of puréed mushrooms, the rest of the mushrooms were chunky as I forgot to cut them up further. That added texture to the bisque. It looks like it’s time to invest in a vitamix machine from Costco. After I browned the onion and garlic, I added the mushroom chunks and sautéed them on high heat while seasoning them with oyster sauce, soy sauce paste and dry sherry. Next, I added the puréed mushrooms, heavy cream and whole milk and brought the bisque to a boil followed by adding chopped fresh basil and Italian parsley. The bisque was yummy with French loaf and my special pork chops. Pork chop recipe coming up soon. Bon appetite!
