Foodie Recipes: Mushroom Soup

December 17, 2018justabelfastgirl

Anyone else absolutely freezing? I AM! I thought why not post my recipe for homemade mushroom soup for the masses? I know mushrooms are hit and miss for some people, but I love them. This recipe is so easy to make and only takes 40 minutes to 60 minutes to make. I’ve set out how to make my yummy soup in 12 easy steps, below. 


50g/2 ounces of butter
2 leeks (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (chopped)
300g/9 ounces of mushrooms (sliced)
2 – 3 sprigs of thyme leaves (or 2 tablespoons of crushed thyme)
Vegetable Stock Cubes (varies according to taste)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Thankfully it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare this yummy meal. 









Cooking time can take from 10 to 30 minutes depending on hob (electric/gas).

You could also slow cook this recipe if you have a slow cooker.







This recipe serves four people, I usually divide my ingredients in half if I don’t plan on using the leftovers for lunches.

If you want to make a bigger pot then you can adjust this recipe accordingly.
