Wassoup? Today was all about soup. I made corn chowder, mushroom cream, and white chicken chili.
With the corn chowder I was able to puree some of the corn I roasted to give the chowder extra yummy corn flavor. One problem I ran into was I made way too much, and I think that is because I converted the recipe wrong. To avoid this next time I need to be more careful when doing culinary math.
The next thing I made was cream of mushroom soup. The idea is to make a creamy soup that tastes a ton like mushrooms. My mistake here was not reading the soup chapter of our textbook before attempting this no-recipe meal. I tried to make a veloute and simmer mushroom trimmings in that to extract flavor, but once I added the cream it kind of disappeared. I’m thinking I might need to add mushroom puree next time.
Today I struggled because I was under prepared. To avoid this I need to be better about doing my homework.
