Mushroom Soup ~ 5-2 Diet

I am always sharing posts about my food props and how I came about owning them.This lovely pair of china bowls that are featured in the pictures below are a new addition to my collection.





They were a recent Mothersday gift from my daughters together with some other gifts. The pastel colours with the floral pattern on them makes them so adorable and perfect for my soup photos below.






Creamy and delicious mushroom soup that is perfect for lunch or served as a starter.

Ingredients:

200 g button Mushrooms
125 g  potato
1 small white onion
1 clove garlic finely minced
500 ml water
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper powder
100 ml milk
1 teaspoon of cream to swirl on top of the soup (optional)


Method:

1. Clean and chop the mushroom into small pieces.
2. Peel and dice the potato into small pieces.
3. Peel and finely chop the onion.
4. In a pan add the olive oil and sauté the onions and garlic until pink and translucent.
5. Add the potatoes and mushrooms and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
6. Add the 500 ml water and bring the liquid to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes until potatoes are cooked.
7. Transfer the soup to a blender jug and purée it in two batches.
8. Return the puréed soup to the pan and bring the soup to a slow simmer. Add the milk and season with slat and pepper.

Turn off the heat and serve soup.

  5. I absolutely love mushrooms but I'm not a big fan of mushroom soup - I have only ever tried it tinned though so I'm spurred on to give this a go. I'm a Slimming World member so not doing 5:2 but it doesn't mean it won't taste great right? Your bowls are very pretty and the photographs are lovely!
