Is it OK to eat the gills of a portobello mushroom?
The stems of large portabella, while technically edible, can be woody and fibrous and are usually discarded (or used to flavor stock). Likewise, the dark black gills can be eaten, but they’ll turn your food a nasty, murky, scuzzy brown, so it’s best to scrape’em out.

What can I add to canned mushroom soup?
This canned soup hack uses cream of mushroom soup. I add in some evaporated skim milk that’s low in fat, but super creamy, plus broccoli, cooked quinoa and white beans. Garnish:

- 4 slices of wheat baguette.
- ¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese.
- Parsley chopped.
What is the best soup thickener?
Just remember, after you add some of the slurry, let the soup return to a simmer— cornstarch is a very effective thickener, and a little bit can go a long way. Cooked potatoes or rice can be mashed or puréed and added to soup for more body. Simmering potatoes and grains in soup will also thicken the liquid slightly.
What is the healthiest way to thicken soup?
Add Flour, Cornstarch, or Other Thickener: Starches thicken soup and give it body. Whisk a few tablespoons of starch into a little of the broth in a separate bowl before whisking it into the main pot. This prevents the starch from clumping and helps it dissolve into the soup evenly.
Is it better to thicken soup with flour or cornstarch?
Cornstarch behaves the same as flour when used a thickener, but absorbs liquids much more readily and lends a clear shiny consistency to soups instead of the opaqueness that a flour thickener imparts. Cornstarch dissolves more readily in cold water or chilled broth, and is less likely to produce lumps in hot soup.
