Meat Free Week Recipes

18 Mar


champignon soup

Today is the start of Meat Free Week and as promised I will be sharing some of my favourite vegetarian recipes throughout the week. Yesterday I was lucky enough to find a huge bag of button mushrooms at the local market for $3 and decided that some creamy mushroom soup was in order. This recipe is easy to make and freezes well for around a fortnight.

What you will Need:
1 kg button mushrooms, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups thickened cream
4 cups vegetable stock
2 teaspoons garlic powder

champignon soup

What to do:
In a large saucepan sauté your mushrooms in the butter and sprinkle with the garlic powder. Turn down the heat an gradually add in the thickened cream, stirring constantly to reduce the risk of curdling. Pour in your vegetable stock 1/2 a cup at a time whilst stirring. Simmer for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove your saucepan from the heat and puree using an immersion blender or food processor. Season as required and serve. Serves 8.
