Almost quicker than heating a tin of soup! 3.8g carb per serve


• 500g mushrooms
• 750ml boiling water
• 3 tspns veg stock powder
• 1&1/2 tspns tarragon
• 2 fat cloves garlic
• 1 med brown onion
• 50ml olive oil
• 300 ml cream


Finely chop onion and mushroom. Peel garlic. Fry onion, mushroom and garlic gently in the olive oil until onion starts to brown and mushrooms are tender.
Add boiling water, tarragon and stock powder and simmer for about ten minutes.
Allow to cool a little before whizzing
in a food processor or with a stick blender. Process until you get a smooth consistency.
Add cream and blend in thoroughly.
Can be frozen, and will also keep for about three days in the fridge.
My Mum's tip is to put in zip lock bags when cool and freeze flat in fridge. Takes up less space and thaws quickly!
Reheat gently to avoid cream separating.

    Hi, I loved this soup. Made a batch today. Totally yummy. Thanks for the recipe!

    This is really scrummy! I made a couple of adjustments to reduce the calorie content, by using 2tbs (30 ml) coconut oil, and 4 tbs creme fraiche (full fat) it came down to 117, serving 4. It would be a very small portion if serving 6, (and only 78 cals). OK as a starter perhaps but it was my lunch!. And substituted parsley for tarragon, since I didn’t have any. Next time I’ll reduce the coconut oil to 1 tbsp, I think that will still taste OK, it will depend where I am on the calorie count for that day 🙂

    Absolutely delicious. I only used about 150ml of cream and for me that was enough. I cannot believe how filling it is. Superb recipe Cherrianne. Thank you.

    This was delicious, although, as others have said, I found the cream too much. I will cut the amount this time. Very filling though.
