Creamy Mushroom Soup

It's a cold wet winters day here in Ireland so for lunch I've opted for delicious homemade cream of mushroom soup. Made with all healthy ingredients and certain to go down a treat with all the family.


  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • ½ leek, chopped
  • 5 ⅓ cups (500g) mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small carrot, chopped
  • 1 small parsnip, chopped
  • 1 small potato, peeled, cubed
  • 2 ½ cups (600ml) vegetable stock
  • ½ cup (100ml) cream fraiche


  1. In a large pot heat the oil, and sauté the chopped onion and sliced leek for about 3 minutes.
  2. Next, add washed and sliced mushrooms and fry for another 10 minutes stirring now and then.
  3. Add the carrot, parsnip and potato. Mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour in the hot vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Simmer, covered for about 15 minutes. until the vegetables are soft.
  5. Mix with a hand blender until smooth, add cream at the end and serve.
  6. Enjoy!
