Creamy Mushroom Soup

One of the most simplest soups to make is with mushrooms.  My family and I enjoyed having this soup last weekend. Here is the recipe...

Ingredients:

Mushrooms any variety (I used Cremini) - 1 package of about 225 grams
Onions - 1 small or half a large one
Coconut oil - 4 to 5 tablespoons
Water or stock - 6 cups
Coconut cream or milk -  1 can (400ml)

Method:

In a large pot heat coconut oil and add chopped onions.  Fry until the onions turn a little soft. Add a little salt. Add chopped mushrooms.  After stir-frying for about 3 minutes or so Add water or stock and bring to a boil. let it boil on medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. Turn off heat. Puree the mushrooms along with some of the stock in a blender until smooth.  Pour the soup back into the pot. Add the can of coconut milk, salt, pepper and boil for about 5 minutes.  Turn off stove. At this point you may also add some crushed garlic.  Stir the soup and pour into serving bowls.

The quantity should be enough for 6 people if you serve with salad and some sweet-potato fries on the side. i will soon post the recipe for sweet-potato fries.
