Gluten-Free Speedy Mushroom Soup

Earthy mushroom soup - a real winter warmer. Serve with toasted cheese and ham sandwiches for a real treat.

Ingredients

Serves 2

  • 1 white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery, finely chopped
  • 4 large field mushrooms, roughly chopped (c.250g)
  • 600ml vegetable/chicken stock
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp cream/crème fraîche to serve (optional)
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped herbs to serve (optional)

Method

  • Sauté the onion and celery in a little oil in a covered saucepan for 5-10 minutes until softened.
  • Add the chopped mushrooms and stir to cover in oil.
  • Season well with salt and pepper and add enough stock to cover the mushrooms (usually c.400ml).
  • Allow to cook gently for 15 minutes.
  • Using a stick blender, blend to the desired consistency or liquidise for a really smooth finish.
  • Serve with a swirl of cream and freshly chopped herbs.

I like to use the large, flat field mushrooms for this recipe but you can use any mushrooms you like. Adding dried mushrooms would give an even more intense mushroomy flavour. Make sure you follow the instructions on the packet re: soaking before cooking.
