Mushroom soup

Whenever we go out to any Western restaurants, I find myself looking at the soup menu and the one that is always there is mushroom soup. Most of the time, I am not too happy with the texture and taste of the soup – it’s either too salty or too runny. So, this time I decided to make it myself. And I was delighted at the result. My sisters being avid fans of mushroom soup attested that this soup is delicious. Herewith is the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 big yellow onion, chopped
  • Whole bulb garlic, chopped
  • 1 packet white mushroom
  • 1 packet brown mushroom
  • 3 potatoes, cubed (pre-cooked)
  • Vegetable stock
  • Cream/milk
  • Black pepper

Steps:

  1. Sauté chopped garlic and onion in butter till fragrant.
  2. Add in the mushroom and sauté till fragrant.
  3. Add in the potatoes.
  4. Add vegetable stock and cream/milk.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Transfer to a blender and purée.
  7. Transfer the purée to the pot and heat up.
  8. Check for consistency and flavour (add in more cream/milk if too thick).
  9. Adjust for seasoning.
