    Mushroom Soup

    Post by Eddie on Mon Dec 01 2014, 18:19


    Cream of mushroom soup was the first soup I fell in love with as a child. Of course, back then it was Campbell’s. At age 8 I could make it myself, quickly learning that adding milk tasted a whole lot better than adding water, and that you had to add it slowly, stirring after each addition, to keep it from getting clumpy. Fast forward to grown-up-land and in my mind, there is still nothing better than cream of mushroom soup, though now we make it with chopped mushrooms, homemade chicken stock (if we have some on hand), and rich cream. Many thanks to my college classmate Scott Simon who gave us the following recipe for this delicious soup, and who clearly loves cream of mushroom soup as much as I.

    If this sort of low carb grub is a killer, I'm a dead man walking. Get that lovely double cream of fresh mushroom soup down ya. Sure beats the junk I used to eat and what a way to go. This low carb lark is one tough gig, six years or more on and still waiting for the downside. Bring on the fillet steak and lobsters. Let's face it, how would you rather check out, eating this sort of grub, or making med taking a full time job and eating the junk that became your entry Visa into the betus club. The choice is yours.

    Just making some now. Threw in a big bagful of mushrooms I got for 50p in Morrisons, half a celeriac, some celery, a chunky stick of leek, a courgette, handful of shrivelling mini tomatoes.

    Will let you know what it tasted like tomorrow....... Very Happy

    Sounds good Ali - especially that bag of mushrooms for 50p. Are you planning on having the soup for lunch? Thanks Smile

    It was scrummy Jan. Just threw in what was floating around my fridge, added a bit of Marigold bouillon powder and some ground coriander.

    Success.

    I love that about soups.

    Glad recipe tasted scrummy.

    Soups are an essential part of winter for me, and it's true just throw the fridge in so to speak and hey presto a great tasting soup - made with low carb ingredients of course !  sunny

    .......Just bumping this great mushroom soup recipe up - might just be what you need on colder winter days, and I've saved you searching for the recipe because 'voila' here it is LOL.

    Keep warm and enjoy your soup.
