Hey peeps, hope you enjoyed the previous simple soup! If you missed that recipe, here is the link: Broccoli & Almond Soup (Soup Series – Recipe 1)
Continuing on with this series, here is another soup you can make in about 10 minutes which tasty, filling & Nutritious.
Similar theme to the previous, but with different flavour!
Mushroom & Hazelnut Soup
Makes: 1 Bowl of Soup | Prep Time: 2 Minutes | Cook & Blend Time: 8 Minutes
Equipment Needed: Kettle, Saucepan, Wooden Spoon or Spatula, Blender (High Speed)
- 300g Mushrooms
- 1 Vegetable Stock Cube (I use Kallo Organic Low Salt Stock Cube)*
- 1 Cup of Plantbased Milk (Preferably Hazelnut, but Almond or soy works well also
- Small Handful of Hazelnuts – About 20 (Or Ground Hazelnuts)
- 1 Cup of Boiling Water (you may need to add more depending on how much evaporates whilst cooking)
- Salt & Pepper
*If you double the recipe, you still only need one stock cube
- Roughly chop mushrooms. They don’t have to be perfect sizes as they will be blended anyway.
- Put the mushrooms and hazelnuts into a saucepan.
- Crumble the stock cube on top.
- Pour a little of plant milk (using as an oil substitute) into the saucepan and “fry” the mushrooms on high heat for a minute or so, stirring all the time to ensure they don’t burn. If you run out of the liquid and it starts to stick, add a little more milk. Keep adding small amounts of milk as needed until they have reduced in size by about half.
- Once they have cooked down till they are about half the size they were, pour in 1 cup of boiling water.
- Cook on medium to high heat for about 5 minutes.
- Add in the rest of the plant milk and cook on high heat for another minute.
- Put the mixture into a high-speed blender (I use a Nutri bullet) and blend for about 1 minute until smooth.
- Season with salt & pepper to taste, and top with some chopped hazelnuts for crunch and some fresh parsley if desired.
* The amount of cooking liquid you add to the blender depends on your desired consistency. For light soups add more liquid, if you want a thick and creamy soup, add less liquid.
Easy. Simple. Delicious!! Enjoy 🙂
