Creamy Funnel Chanterelle Soup (Winter Chanterelle Soup)

creamy funnel chanterelles soup

We are entering the winter months and what is better than going foraging for funnel chanterelles and make them into a creamy funnel chanterelle soup? Funnel chanterelles are also known as winter chanterelles and yellow foot and can be difficult to spot from the leaves on the forest floor. If you are lucky enough to find them, you will often find a lot of them at the same spot.

Funnel chanterelles are my absolute favorite autumn mushrooms since the taste is amazing and they can be used in so many dishes. This funnel chanterelle soup is really tasty and perfect to heat you up in the autumn/winter months. You can of course also use other wild mushrooms like the black trumpet- hedgehog- or porcini mushrooms that are especially known to appear in autumn.
