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.

What you need:

•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 

What to do:

In a large pot heat the oil, and sauté the chopped onion and sliced leek for about 3 minutes

Next, add washed and sliced mushrooms and fry for another 10 minutes stirring now and then.

Add the carrot, parsnip and potato. Mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour in the hot vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Simmer, covered for about 15 minutes. until the vegetables are soft. 

Mix with a hand blender until smooth, add cream at the end and serve.
