Garlic And Mushroom Soup

Soup is a great way to gain all those healthy nutrients that we need and with the winter months fast approaching its lovely to warm up with a nice hot bowl of soup.

I love experimenting with different flavours of soup and generally I don’t follow a recipe book much as I like to throw in different things to try so hope you like this one as its a little bit out there.

So here’s How I done It.

Ingredients

  • Large Garlic Clove or two Small ones
  • A punnet of wild mushrooms
  • A punnet of Button Mushrooms
  •  3 French Shallots
  • 1 Leek
  • 3-4 Potatoes
  • 1 litre of Vegetable Stock
  • Splash of white wine

Method

  • I Started by chopping up my Garlic,both sets of mushrooms,my leek,potato and shallots as this makes it easy as I go on.
  • Next I use a large soup pot and fry off my garlic and for this I use a little sunflower oil.
  • I then add in my chopped leek and shallots and add a little splash of white wine or a big slash which ever you prefer.
  • Once everything is fried of I then added in my Vegetable stock, my chopped mushrooms my potatoes and turn the heat up to the boil.
  • Once at the boil I would give it about 10-15 to ensure everything is soft and then i would turn the heat down and allow it to simmer for about 30-45 minutes.
  • I then use my hand blending inside the pot to blend everything. Do be careful doing this as the soup will be very hot and may splash.
  • Now that my soup is blended it is then time to serve. With soup I always recommend serving it with warm crusty bread and butter.

So there you have it my take on a Garlic & Mushroom Soup.
