Teenie Crimini

The Green City Market has officially closed until spring. While this makes me a little sad, I still have options. I have began ordering from Irv and Shelly’s Fresh Picks. They are a delivery service of local and organic produce, meat, dairy, and eggs. You have the option of choosing specifically what you want, but you can also order a a Fresh Picks box. This is a box full of the land’s “best of”. Whatever is beautiful and in-season, you can depend them being in the box. It’s a fun way to order. You don’t know exactly what may show up, and you may recieve something that you have never cooked with before. Challange!
An example of a winter box would be what I received last week:
Dried Cranberries
Burdock Root (what?!)
Red Cabbage
Crimini Mushrooms
Red Beets
Sounds pretty fun, right? The possibilites are endless. I’ll get back to you regarding the burdock root. This would be my challenge of the week.
Before then though I wanted to focus on one of my favorite winter meals: Soup! I love making it, and love eating it. When I got the mushrooms, they cried out to be made into a creamy soup. How could I deny them?

Creamy Crimini Mushroom Soup

1 medium onion, chopped
1 pint crimini mushrooms
1 c milk
1 Tb butter
1 tsp oil
1Tb Flour
1 tsp dried thyme
In a large pot, saute onion in butter and oil. Chop mushrooms (I like them very finely chopped, so I threw them in the Cuisinart.) and add to onions. Stir and saute for about 5 minutes. Add flour and stir. Slowly add stock
