PORCINI AND CHESTNUT SOUP

Serves 4

20g Gigante porcini

2 cups boiling water

30ml extra virgin olive oil (EVO)

1 large onion, finely sliced

250g Portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, picked off stems

Sal de Añana spring salt

500ml Foundation beef stock (or vegetable stock if preferred)

150g Naiciña chestnuts , coarsely crumbled

1 bay leaf

2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

2 tsp Sabato porcini powder

Freshly ground black pepper

Place the porcini in a bowl; pour over the boiling water then set aside for 10 minutes to soften. Then roughly slice the porcini and reserve the liquid.

Meanwhile, heat EVO in a pot, add the onion and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring regularly, until soft. Add the sliced mushrooms, garlic, thyme and a little salt and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour in the stock, add the porcini and the reserved soaking liquid, the chestnuts and bay leaf. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to a simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Add the parsley, porcini powder and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove the bay leaf before serving.

  • Sal de Añana Mineral Salt

    Sal de Añana Mineral Salt


    Concentrated pure natural salt crystals, rich in minerals and trace elements. This is ideal for general day-to-day use.

    Used by the top names in Spanish food such as Roca, Subijana, Guerrero, Aduriz, Atxa and Berasategui to name a few; Sal de Añana is from the ancient Valley of Salt in the town of Salinas de Añana (Basque Country). It is considered to be one of the best salt varieties in the world and the valley is currently one of the most spectacular and best-preserved cultural landscapes in Europe. This unique landscape consists of thousands of platforms or salt-pans, channels, wells and storage areas.

    Añana Salt is naturally sundried from spring water flowing from an underground 8000 year old spring formed where there was a vast sea 200 million years ago. The crystallisation process is the result of natural, sundried evaporation, and is based on three factors: the sun, wind and traditional techniques used by the salt workers.
