The other day we received a wonderful gift of fresh vegetables, including a box of mushrooms! So, that could mean only one thing: mushroom soup! Sr. Cook surprised us tonight with a huge kettle of steaming soup that tasted just wonderful with cheese sandwiches! As you can see, it doesn't take much to make nuns happy! As one sister said, "After God, what more could you want!"
Here is Sister's recipe...we think. Sister confessed that when it comes to soup (and a lot of other things in the kitchen) she wings it!
Rosary Shrine Mushroom Soup
22 cups of sliced mushrooms (that food processor we received at Christmas got a workout!)
Fill soup kettle with water, mushrooms, etc. and let cook under tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile:
3 T of butter/ margarine, melted.
Add a little Old Bay Seasoning if you have it.
Go to stockroom and look for some cooking sherry. Pour in to soup to taste.
Find a sister who likes to taste and critique soup and have her taste it to find out if it is OK.
Turn off stove, cover and go to Vespers!
Benedictus Deus dones eis!
