Recipes–Root Vegetable Soup With Portabello Mushrooms And Sherry

The intense flavor of the dried portabella mushrooms, the sweetness of the sherry, and the salty fragrance of soy sauce perfectly complement the root vegetables.  I had some watermelon radishes in the refrigerator, and while not as distinctive as when raw, they add some piquancy to the soup.
