Creamy Corn and Shiitake Mushroom Soup

Creamy Corn and Shiitake Mushroom Soup

This simple soup pairs sweet corn with earthy shiitake mushrooms, achieving a delicious balance of flavors. One of our favorite dishes from Andrea Nyugen's Into The Vietnamese Kitchen, we love making this when we're craving a creamy soup but don't want the cream! Also, the rich shiitake mushrooms make this dish feel more substantial than a standard vegetable soup.
