Full mushroom soup recipe | AmateurChef.co.ukAfter being away for several weeks, I was keen to get back into the kitchen. Its surprising how much I missed being behind the cooker!! To really give myself a nice cooking session I decided to cook a nice 3 course dinner.

The evenings have started getting a little colder, I therefore thought a nice warm soup would be great. I decided to create a nice cream of mushroom soup, this recipe is perfect as itโ€™s quick to make. Itโ€™s also very easy to do and tastes fantastic.

I was expecting it to be a little thicker but this didn’t take anything away from the taste, to thicken it id probably just add more mushrooms next time.

The first thing to note is the mushrooms, I decided to use two different types. Closed Cup and chestnut, I felt this gives it a nice additional flavouring with the chestnut mushrooms. It is only a subtle flavour but I do think it’s worth it ๐Ÿ™‚

I placed the butter into a large frying pan and once melted added the chopped onions, chopped celery, thyme and garlic until the onions were soft and transparent. I chopped the mushrooms and added these into the mixture and cooked for 5-10 minutes, until the mushrooms begin to soften.

Boil the vegetable stock and add this to pan, leave to simmer for a good 30 minutes. Allow this to cook for another 5 minutes whilst continuing to stir.

Transfer to a food processor to blitz all of the bits into a nice smooth cream of mushroom soup. If you like soup that has no bits in it then you could put it through a sieve. I didn’t do this as I do love a few bits in my soup. When ready to serve pour in the creme fraiche and mix in until itโ€™s all combined.

I poured the soup into the bowls, added a bit of chives for decoration and a few drops of olive oil that has been infused with white truffle. This did add a nice extra flavour and would recommend it, as an alternative you could use more cream fraiche or olive oil infused with garlic.

To accompany the soup I sliced some bread, added some oil on each side with salt and pepper and grilled itโ€ฆ.yummy!!
