Recipe: Portabello Tortellini Soup

The requests for warm & comforting soups are more than I expected! This soup was the hands down favorite at my cafe (2002-2005), and was once served to 600 people at a charity event.
I will never forget that undertaking!

Alot of people ask how I came up with this recipe, it was an early Saturday morning at the cafe, and the soup on Saturdays was always a "cook's special".
Pretty soon, I was putting this together, never dreaming it would have "cult following". It has been 2 years since I sold my cafe, but I still get comments on this soup.

Portabello Tortellini Soup

2 oz butter melted
4 stalks celery- chopped
1 sweet onion- chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
4-5 lg Portabello mushrooms chopped
1 lb ground beef
2 tblsp balsamic vinegar
2 tblsp honey

Sauté all of the above in a large stockpot, over med- high heat until ground beef is well done.

add
1 -2 cans diced tomatoes (14 oz) (depending on how much tomato you like)
32 oz beef broth or consommé (approximately, put less broth for chunkier, thicker soup)

Let simmer gently for 30 minutes to 1 hour, the longer the better. TASTE.

season to your taste with:
fresh basil minced
fresh parsley minced
salt & pepper
granulated garlic

Prepare fresh (refrigerated) 3 cheese tortellini according to pkg directions. Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside. When soup is finished, put tortellinis in bottom of soup bowl and ladle hot soup over them. Garnish soup with freshly shredded, excellent quality parmesan cheese!

About Me

My photo
Cincinnati, OH, United States
A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
