Wild Mushroom Infused Broth Recipe

Dried mushrooms are full of concentrated flavors. Infusing them into water creates a rich, flavorful broth that is a wonderful base for building savory dishes. You can alter the spices or herbs used in the infusion to further complement the final dish you are creating. I usually press on the mushrooms to extract all the liquid from them but if you want a clearer broth you can skip that step or use a finer strainer to better clarify it.

In addition to serving this as a soup base, it is a flavorful way to create pan sauces for steaks or to use as the cooking liquid for rice or risotto. I will also occasionally foam it for a modernist garnish.
