Spinach and Mushroom Cream Soup with Minced Chicken


It’s mushroom season in Finland. Street markets sell mainly Kantarelli and Suppilovahvero. If you go into the forest on your own, you can find a lot of mushrooms, including Herkkutatti and other tatti.

We don’t know much about mushrooms, but this year we learned how to identify Lampaankääpä. They are also very tasty. It has a strong flavor that somehow reminds me of shiitake or shimeji mushrooms.
