Cream Of Mushroom Soup

Even my mom who doesn’t eat mushrooms can’t resist this cream of mushroom soup temptation.

With the key ingredient being mushrooms, it is important to pick up the best ones.

I do prefer mixed wild mushrooms such as chanterelles, morels, oysters, or meaty shiitake. They have lovely scent and flavours that makes this soup so aromatic.

This soup is very easy to make – just pop everything into a pot, simmer, then blitz!

Enjoy this warming flavoursome mushroom soup with a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh herbs or just a dollop of cream.
