Japanese Mushroom Soup

Happy New Year! Working in retail, the holiday season was a busy one for me so I haven’t been blogging much but I hope to do more of it now!  And I was cooking this soup up today so I figured what better time to start.
One of my girls loves the Japanese steakhouse near us… in fact we’ve gone there every year for her birthday as long as I can remember.  We all love the near-clear soup they serve, with just a few mushrooms and onion bits floating in it and when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it.  I tweaked it a bit and, while it’s not exactly like the local  restaurant’s, it’s pretty darn good as is.  
Japanese Mushroom Soup
                                                               Japanese Mushroom Soup
1 celery stalk
1 small onion
2 carrots
Canned French fried onions
1 small piece fresh ginger (about 1 inch long)
3 garlic cloves
2 large beef bouillon cubes
2 large chicken bouillon cubes
2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
8 cups water
Cut the celery, onion and carrots in fourths and add to the water in a large stock pot.  Cut the ginger and garlic into a few pieces each and toss into the water, along with the bouillon cubes.  Cover the pot and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for a least an hour.  Strain the vegetables, discarding them and leaving just the broth.  Add the sliced mushrooms and simmer a few minutes more.  Serve with a few French fried onions sprinkled on top.
