Chanterelle Soup / Kantarellsuppe

A recipe for a classic autumn soup found on

In the woods around my week place outside Oslo there has always been chanterelles in abundance. A great mushroom both for soups like this or stewed as a side dish for meat dishes.

In Context:
Cantharellus cibarius
, commonly known as the chanterelle, golden chanterelle or girolle, is a fungus. It is probably the best known species of the genus Cantharellus, if not the entire family of Cantharellaceae. It is orange or yellow, meaty and funnel-shaped. On the lower surface, underneath the smooth cap, it has gill-like ridges that run almost all the way down its stipe, which tapers down seamlessly from the cap. It emits a fruity aroma, reminiscent of apricots and a mildly peppery taste (hence its German name, Pfifferling) and is considered an excellent edible mushroom.

Chanterelles are relatively high in vitamin C (0.4 mg/g fresh weight), very high in potassium (about 0.5%, fresh weight),[10] and among the richest sources of vitamin D known, with ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) as high as 212 IU/100 grams fresh weight. Scientific research has suggested that the golden chanterelle may have potent insecticidal properties that are harmless to humans and yet protect the mushroom body against insects and other potentially harmful organisms.

    We get chanterelles around here a lot too – unfortunately too many of them go to waste, but they are coveted by the connoisseurs. This soup looks superb.

      They are easy recognizable and freeze well so I take a couple of rounds in the woods with my daughters and every autumn and fill up the freezer. Makes delicious soups as you say and are great stewed with mos meat dishes.

    I love to forage for mushrooms and chanterelles are my favourites. I haven’t found any here to forage yet but I can still buy them in the markets. The soup looks delicious.
