Oyster Mushroom Broth with Fennel

This is a delightful umami-packed broth that is a great base for soups, rice, and more! For those who are hesitant about mushrooms, it has a well-rounded flavor with more of an ambiguous umami flavor, than a strong mushroomy flavor. My favorite ways to use it are in place of water when making rice or as the base for a simple veggie and noodle soup for lunch!

For those who aren’t familiar, oyster mushrooms are an abundant wild mushroom whose sturdiness and bounty makes them a great candidate for drying. You can also find them in most grocery stores, either dried or fresh, which is great if you just want to get started eating more mushrooms.
