Mushroom Soup
SHARE THIS:

I love soup in winter and I absolutely love mushrooms so of course I had to create a mushroom soup! But, this isn't just any mushroom soup. This is a delicious creamy soup packed full with mushroom flavour AND dairy free!

This soup really doesn't take that long to make and you will be rewarded with a comforting meal when you are finished.

Firstly, don't forget to soak the macadamias straight away. You want these nice and soft so that at the end when everything gets blitzed really well they help to give the soup a nice creamy texture.

I made this soup with a mix of mushrooms that I had in the fridge (cup, brown, king oyster, portobello). You don't have to use a mix but a variety of different mushrooms will give you more flavour than say, just the cup mushrooms.

This soup will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days or you can freeze it in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Enjoy it with some fresh microwave bread from my Keto Basics ebook.
