Mushroom & Miso Soup

  • Makes 6 portions

Mushrooms are healthy because of the significant amount of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals they contain.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 6  garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 5 cups of vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp of white miso paste
  • 6 tbsp of fresh lemon juice (1 medium lemon)
  • 2 cup of unsweetened soya milk 
  • pepper to taste

*Green onions, pine nuts, fried onion are a few ideas for topping and optional

Instructions

  • In a large pot, add the mushrooms, garlic, thyme and a splash of water to prevent sticking. Sauté until the mushrooms are reduced, around 5 minutes.
  • Add the broth, miso paste and lemon juice and bring to a low boil, cook for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the milk, and then use an immersion blender or a blender to purée your soup (I left some bits of mushrooms not entirely blended, as I like the feel of little chunks when I am eating the soup). Taste and add pepper if you wish. I then served it with crusty bread.

Enjoy !
