Magic Mushroom Soup

“Nature alone is antique, and the oldest art a mushroom.” – Thomas Carlyle

There really is nothing quite like a hearty bowl of soup to warm you up on a chilly autumn afternoon. With creamy and rich white button mushrooms, you really can’t go wrong! Try out this seasonal soup recipe by KitchenAid for a true taste of mother nature’s very own pantry while you’re snuggled up in a cosy blanket on the sofa.

Ingredients 

240 g Sliced white button mushrooms

300 g Diced yellow onion

2 Teaspoons minced garlic (2 cloves) 

1 Tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme (Plus more to taste!)

Two tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons wheat-free tamari

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

480 ml vegetable broth

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, to serve

To taste sea salt

Method

Step 1

In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil, and sauté the onions, thyme, and garlic for about 5 minutes until the onions are soft and translucent.

Step 2

Add in the mushrooms, tamari, and black pepper, and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, until the mushrooms are reduced and cooked through.

Step 3

Transfer the mushroom mixture to the jar of the KitchenAid® Power Plus® Blender, and add the broth.

Step 4

Secure the lid, and set the blender to the Adapti-Blend™ Soup program.

Step 5

Blend until the machine turns itself off. (Alternatively, blend for about 5 minutes, starting on speed 1 and gradually increasing to speed 10). The soup will come out of the blender piping hot!

Step 6

Season with salt to taste, and garnish with finely chopped parsley.

Step 7

Serve with crusty bread or a scoop of cooked grains.
