Ingredients for 4 portions

Per portion: 883 kJ / 211 kcal

  • 250 g fresh chanterelles (tinned mushrooms can be used instead)
  • 1 large onion
  • 250 g potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/2 l broth
  • 125 g tofu
  • 3-4 tbsp. Kikkoman naturally brewed soy sauce
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp. dry sherry
  • 1/2 bunch of basil


Preparation time: 35 mins

Clean the chanterelles, wipe carefully if necessary, slice larger mushrooms. Peel and dice the onions and potatoes. Melt the butter or margarine in a saucepan and fry the mushrooms briefly. Remove and keep warm. Sweat the onion and potato in the saucepan without browning, add the stock and leave to simmer over a low heat for 15 minutes in a covered saucepan. Allow the tofu to rest in cold water for five minutes before use, then drain. Dice and add the tofu to the onion and potato. Place the ingredients in a liquidiser or hand blender and blend until smooth and frothy. Return to the saucepan and bring to the boil. Season with soy sauce, pepper and sherry. Add the chanterelles to the soup and heat through. Serve garnished with basil.

The soup is easy to prepare. It must, however, be whisked to a froth before serving.
