                             Curried Mushroom soup
 1 c.   assorted dried oyster, morel, and porcini mushrooms
 	(1 oz dried mushrooms)
 2 c.   boiling water
        Light vegetable oil cooking spray
 1.5 c. chopped leek, white part only (2-3 leeks)
 2 tbs  all-purpose flour
 1 tbs  curry powder
 4 c.   skim milk
 1      vegetarian chicken bouillon cube
 2 c.   chopped fresh portobella mushrooms
 	(3 small mushrooms)
 1 tbs  dry sherry (optional)
 1 tbs  chopped fresh chervil
 Combine the dried mushrooms and boiling water in a bowl and set aside to soak.
 Preheat a stockpot over medium heat for about 1 minute, then spray it twice
 with the vegetable oil.  Add the leeks and saute for about 3 minutes, stirring
 constantly, until translucent.  Add the flour and curry powder.  Stir until
 leeks are well coated.  Add the milk and bouillon cube.  Raise the heat to high
 and cook just until the bubbles begin to form around the edges.
 Reduce the heat to low and whisk and all ingedients are thoroughly combined. 
 Stir in the fresh mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes.
 Meanwhile, remove the reconstituted mushrooms from their soaking liquid,
 squeeze out excess moisture, and roughly chop.  Add to the stockpot and cook
 for 1 minute more.  Stir in the sherry.  Garnish with chopped chervil.
