Mushroom cream soup LCHF

November 22, 2014

I love mushrooms. Of course, I love food, thus it wasn’t hard for me to get attached to the mushrooms. Dipped in house-made mayonnaise, with a bit of garlic, with Greek yogurt or fried in butter, you name it and I’ll eat it. And if I remember this well, it was the mushrooms that made me buy my first blender. It was pretty weak, but I kept insisting on making cream soups at least once a week.

The mushroom cream soup I made last week was probably the best I’ve ever had. Maybe one reason was the new powerful blender, but another important reason was my creativity.

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams fresh mushrooms (I used Champignons)
  • 400 ml cooking cream
  • 80 grams salted butter
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 4 slices of hard cheese
  • two slices of homemade low carb bread
  • one garlic glove

I boiled the mushrooms for about 20 minutes, then I rinsed them in cold water. I drained the water and put the mushrooms into the blender bowl. I chopped them roughly a few seconds, then added the salted butter. I mixed again for a few moments, to melt the butter, then started to add the cooking cream, a bit at a time, until I got the desired consistency. In a hot frying pan, I cooked the bacon then left it on a paper towel, to absorb some of the fat. I rubbed the low carb bread slices with the garlic clove, then ce same pan as the bacon, until brown and crispy. I poured the soup in two deep plates, decorated it with bites of bacon and ate it with the croutons and the hard cheese. To die for!

  1. Simmer some mushrooms in veg stock, add baked beans and tinend tomatoes . Stir well, turn out onto a small piece of unbuttered seeded toast, grind fresh black pepper on it. It will keep you going for hours!
