Mushroom Soup – Getting Started on Elf for Health

26 Nov

I’ve made this cheap and simple mushroom soup recipe today. It makes about 4 portions.

Roughly chop an onion and using fry-light spray, soften in a medium saucepan over a low heat for 10 minutes. If it is browning too much, add a drop of water to lift of the delicious brown bits from the bottom of the pan before they burn!

Add a pack of chopped mushrooms. I used these low priced and dirty ones (375g) which were perfect after a good wash and trim. Stir in the hot pan for a few minutes before covering with hot water from the kettle, adding a stock cube and a teaspoon of dried thyme and the secret ingredient – 2 teaspoons of soy sauce. Stir, put the lid on and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

After this time, I removed it from the heat and blended with a stick blender. I then added about half a pint of semi-skimmed milk and gently reheated.

A delicious, low calorie and easy meat-free recipe!
