Oyster Lentil Mushroom Soup

in Soups

I despise talking about the weather, but excuse me while I talk about the weather. This past weekend it was a cool, brisk and a very perfect temperature of 65 during the day and in the 50s at night. This is the kind of spring weather that inspires one to wear shorts with a sweater. It’ll inspire you to make a big batch of soup and eat it outside with a blanket draped over your shoulders. It’s dreamy weather, really.

Los Angeles is currently experiencing some freakish heatwave at this very second and if only I could go back to the dreamy blanket-over-shoulder-while-eating-soup-weather. I’m not going to complain about Los Angeles weather because that’d be silly. Instead, I’m going to wait for it to pass, so I can revisit his soup which is oh so perfect.

This is another recipe I did for the Mushroom Channel. I used oysters in these and a good amount of them. I paired them with pretty red lentils and added some spices like ground coriander and cumin. Lentils and mushrooms are a winning combo. For the recipe and more, hop on over to The Mushroom Channel’s Blog!

Wow this looks delicious! I am so using my mushies tonight to make a black bean version on this.

I’m getting really into lentils and pulses at the moment in an attempt to have a more varied diet. This looks delicious!

They were an old Anthropologie find! Unfortunately they don’t sell them anymore. :(

I’m really picky about my soup weather too! Anything above 65 is too hot to enjoy soup if you ask me. This one looks so good though – I could gobble it up on the warmest of spring days! Yum!

Our farmers’ market it still pretty sparse here in Northern Illinois, but we do have and awesome mushroom stand that always has lovely looking oyster mushrooms- I’ll have to pick some up on Saturday and give this a try- looks SO good!

This looks (and sounds) delicious – I haven’t tried lentils and mushrooms together but will definitely give this a go. By the way dont worry about talking about the weather – we Brits do it all the time. Cool and damp here at the minute :-)
