Ingredients

  • 1 lbs Lobster Mushrooms
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 4 Cups Vegan Chicken Broth*
  • 1/4 Cup White Wine

Lobster Mushroom Oil

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil, Plus another 2 tbs coconut oil reserved

Roux

Garnish

  • Sautéed slices of lobster mushrooms
  • Green Onion Finely Chopped

Instructions

Lobster Butter Oil for Roux

  • Clean the lobster mushrooms by cutting off all black and browned bits, reserve them and cut off enough to measure about 1/2 cup worth of lobster mushroom scraps
  • In a small sauce pan add your coconut oil and add the lobster mushroom scraps on low heat- sprinkle a pinch of salt over it
  • Let the oil and mushrooms simmer over low heat for 1 hour
  • Strain and set aside 1/3 cup of the infused oil. Refrigerate the rest of the oil and use for pasta, toast, rice, ect. Save the mushroom scraps to be used for vegetable broth
  • Chop the onion, crush and mince the garlic, dice the lobster mushroom

Preparation

  • Follow the directions grouping below depending on if you have an Instant Pot or if you prefer to use stove top

*Instant Pot Directions*

  • Add 2 tbs coconut oil, the onion, and garlic to the instant pot and turn on the sauté function for 10 minutes
  • Sauté until the onions start to become translucent and then add your lobster mushrooms and your Vegan Chicken Broth
  • Cook on high for 20 minutes
  • (Skip stove top directions if using Instant Pot)

*Stove Top Directions*

  • Add 2 tbs coconut oil, the onion, and garlic to a large pot and sauté on medium high heat for about 10 minutes, or until your onions become translucent
  • Add the lobster mushrooms and the broth and bring to a simmer, cooking for 1 hour.
  • Blend with either an immersion blender* or add to blender to make smooth

Lobster Mushroom Roux

  • In a small sauce pan add 1/3 cup of the infused lobster mushroom oil with 8tbs coconut milk (1/3 cup + 2tbs), whisk gently to mix on low heat
  • Slowly whisk in the 1/3 cup flour to combine
  • Add the Roux to the blended lobster mushrooms and broth along with the 1/4 cup white wine. Blend until smooth or mix well

Notes

  • You can use 1 tbs No Chicken Bullion to 4 cups water for this broth, or you can use a vegetable broth for a similar experience. If using a vegetable broth taste as you go to ensure there is enough salt and umami. Consider adding a tsp of mushroom seasoning or a tsp of msg to get those savory pops of flavor
  • A hand held Immersion blender works great for bisques, however it will be tough to get to be ultra smooth like what a standard blender will do. Small bits of the lobster mushroom are tough to completely get smooth- however the texture is still very enjoyable.
