Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 250gm/9oz Chestnut mushrooms
  • 600ml/20fl oz. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 vegetable stock cube (I use Kallo organic)
  • 1 clove of minced garlic (you may substitute a shallot or use both if preferred)
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • *100ml/3.5fl oz. soya cream (I use Alpro: no GMO and no rainforest harvesting)
  • *(Some people will not eat soy. You can substitute soy cream with extra almond milk and a bit of ghee for creaminess - or omit ghee for lower fat/calorie (6.8g fat). OR if you eat dairy use proper cream.)
Instructions
  1. Roughly chop all but 6 of the mushrooms and add to large saucepan with the rest of the ingredients. Simmer about 10 minutes until mushrooms are tender. Blend until smooth. (I use a stick blender but you can also use a food processor).
  2. Slice remaining mushrooms and add to the soup. Heat through and serve.
Notes
(Will serve 4 as a starter/appetiser - just cut the nutrition info in half)
