    Mushroom Broth

    Consider this broth an umami bomb and unlike anything you’ll find in the soup aisle of the supermarket. It’s a wonderful base for any Asian-inspired soup, but can also star in risottos. Or use it when braising fish such as salmon or halibut and sautéing up a bunch of sliced mushrooms.
