Wild mushroom soup

We made it to Friday, yay!

What are you’re plans this weekend? I can finally announce that I no longer live in a dark and dingy cave….I’m freeeee!

Yes the scaffolding actually came down (well most of it) I must have jinxed something with my last post, in a good way of course. SO that means tomorrow I will be having the breakfast of my dreams, woohoo. I’m so excited!

I’m going to have a go at making bagels today, I can’t believe I’ve never tried to make them before. If you have any tips or can point me in the direction of a great recipe let me know. Hopefully the bagels turn out ok and I can have them with my glorious, leisurely breakfast tomorrow morning. Watch out for them on Instagram.

Now back to today’s post – Wild Mushroom Soup.

I LOVE this soup….probably because I adore mushrooms but also because it’s so simple, very speedy, creamy and comforting, YUM!

I often serve this with garlic toasts topped with extra mushrooms and parsley or big chunks of soft, crusty bread to dunk. This wild mushroom soup is also very filling and makes the perfect simple dinner recipe to enjoy on a busy weeknight.

To make the soup I start by roughly chopping the mixed wild mushrooms and adding them to a pot with a glug of olive oil. I stir the mushrooms for a minute or so until they start to soften then add finely chopped red/purple onion and garlic along with plenty pepper and a pinch of salt.

While the mushrooms and onions are softening I cover dried porcini mushrooms in hot water from the kettle and let them sit for 5-10 minutes. These smell amazing and add incredible flavour to the soup!

The porcini mushrooms and liquid are added to the mushrooms along with vegetable stock. I let the soup simmer for 10-15 minuted and then blitz it all up using a hand held blender. Cream is added and any extra seasoning and it’s done!

I serve the soup in big bowls topped with a drizzle of truffle oil and parsley, it’s gorgeous and warms you right up!

Have a lovely weekend guys 🙂

    The soup looks delicious. I am sure that it pairs with homemade bread well. I would love it served in Italy, especially.

    I absolutely love mushrooms, but I’m too terrified to pick my own wild ones lest I accidentally kill us all, lol! Where do you get your mushrooms from to make your gorgeous looking soup?

      Hey Elizabeth, no I’m with you there I wouldn’t try picking them myself. The supermarkets in Italy sell packs of mixed wild mushrooms so I buy them there, safely lol. Thanks so much for stopping by ☺️

    Love wild mushrooms! I have never tried making bagels myself mainly because I think they are too complicated to make. If you make a post about them I might give them a try! 🙂

    Your scaffodlding comment reminds me of when my husband and I stayed at a fancy hotel in Quebec City. I had scored us a great deal on one of the better rooms! Or so I thought, when we got their we found out the reason our room rate was so low that there was scaffolding all around our section of the building, and they had wrapped our room up tight with fabric! Dark and Dingy is right! So glad you are free! And love the mushroom soup too. Especially the idea to use porcinis and their soaking liquid!
