Not only are soups easy to make they are also nutritious, enabling you to eat a few portions of your five a day in one easy meal. My toddler usually likes them to, I give him the unblended version so he has pieces of food to pick up with his fingers and leave out cream because he has a dairy sensitivity.
This week I made mushroom soup for the first time. I didn't follow a recipe (I rarely do for soups) I just thought about what I would like to do and went ahead. It isn't the cheapest soup to make because it required a whole pack of mushrooms, but was very very tasty.
One pack of organic chestnut mushrooms,
One large organic onion,
Three cloves of allotment garlic,
One kallo chicken stock cube,
1 tbs organic olive oil,
A dash of organic double cream.
To begin I chopped the onion and garlic and fried it in the olive oil. I then chopped the mushrooms and addded them till they went soft and watery. Next I added enough water to cover the mushrooms plus a bit more and added the chicken stock cube.
After cooking for about 15 mins I blended the whole thing and added the cream.
Served with crusty white bread it was absolutely delicious and tasted just like a bought fresh mushroom soup.
