This soup is OUT OF CONTROL GOOD!!! We used Lion's Mane to replace the crabmeat, which I found on the clearance rack at Lemon St. Market for $1 (SCORE!) We got the inspiration after going to Bistro Barbaret for breakfast, they had these incredible French baguettes and I couldn't leave without one. George suggested we try making a bisque with the lion's mane to pair with the bread for dinner.
My CSA included this recipe from chef Adam Boyd in a previous box, and I made a couple adjustments based off what I had on hand and my personal preferences. It is VERY filling and pairs great with a little flatbread/naan or a green salad. The flavors will transport you to the beautiful mountains of northern Thailand!
