Ms Mova really liked the mushroom soup that Ms Tagalong contributed to the working day last weekend. She said she liked it so much that she wanted the recipe. Ms Tagalong has been thinking long and hard about how she made it and will try her best to recreate it here. But, Ms Mova, there are no guarantees it will taste the same!
1 Brown bag of mushrooms (peeled and sliced)
1 onion sliced
1 clove garlic
A large handful of mixed herbs from the garden
Ms Tagalong found coriander, thyme, basil and comfrey all growing wildly in the garden!
The onion was well and truly browned with the chopped garlic. It might have even been caramelised with brown sugar!
The chopped onions were added and fried and then stock was added.
When the mushrooms were cooked through the chopped herbs were thrown in with gay abandon. (Now did you know that comfrey is a very special healing herb?)
The whole lot was whizzed with a handheld mouli type mixer.
Milk was added to the desired colour.
Soup was served with a dollop of sour cream and some more chopped coriander.
I have to acknowledge that I stole the photo from a fellow blogger but I promise mine looked just like that. Apologies to Kevin in Toronto! His recipe might be more precise than mine but not sure that it would feed the hungry hordes working in the garden!
