Combine creamy and delicious local Ontario brie with your forage. While foraging for wild mushrooms is a popular epicurean pursuit, using Ontario-grown mushrooms guarantees that your next meal will be one to remember. Roughly half of Canada’s mushrooms are grown in Ontario, from button and shiitake to blue oyster and lion’s mane varieties. Adding a few different types of local mushrooms is a great way to enrich a classic French onion soup with great texture alongside some cheesy, creamy goodness.

Ingredients

Method

Step 1

In a soup pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Sauté onion for 10 minutes or until it starts to become golden and soft.

 

Step 2

Add garlic, fresh and dried mushrooms, thyme, salt and pepper; then sauté for about 10 minutes or until no liquid remains.

 

Step 3

Stir in wine until evaporated, then stir in broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

 

Step 4

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

 

Step 5

Place bread slices on a baking sheet and top each with a slice of cheese. Toast in oven for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

 

Step 6

Ladle soup into bowls and top each with a cheesy bread slice.
