This is, quite frankly, the loveliest hot and sour soup we've ever had, with none of the usual gloppiness of takeout Chinese. And it's on the table in just 20 minutes.
The elusive lilt of lemongrass. The sour, puckery smack of tamarind. The warm-your-belly pervasiveness of galangal. The unmistakable funk of fish sauce. All in this exquisitely authentic Thai soup.
This eminently easy-to-assemble jumble of autumn veggies and pasta just sorta screams elegance, don't you agree?
We don't even like veggie burgers. We swear. Well, except for this deliciously irresistible, soulfully satiating riff on mushroom and barley soup.
Mushrooms and butter and garlic. Think you've been there, done that? Trust us, you haven't. Not like this.
An effortless, elegant side that fancies up the form as well as the flavor of two enduring entertaining icons: the stuffed mushroom and Thanksgiving stuffing.
Boletus edulis—that's the fancy-pants name for porcini—is hardly a come-hither sort of name, but with a taste like this, who cares?
Elegance was never achieved with such ease. Simply stack cooked lasagna noodles with sautéed 'shrooms and smother with a luxurious cream sauce for some everyday extravagance.
