A “Mushroom” Soup for the Finicky

Between you and me, it’s hard to get folks who won’t eat vegetables to give them a try. However, there are many people who love their steak that also like mushrooms. I was able to make a soup that tastes like it’s all about the mushrooms and add a few other healthy veggies to it. It’s virtually a fat-free dish! Shhhh…just serve this and see what happens. 🙂

Ingredients (serves 6-8)

6 portobello mushrooms, diced

1 eggplant, diced

1 small onion, diced

1/4 cup hummus

1/4 cup avocado or guacamole

1/2 cup fresh spinach

1 large celery stalk

1 whole lime, uncut

1 TB chopped, fresh cilantro

1 32 oz carton chicken or veg stock

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1 TB sea salt, or to taste

fat-free sour cream, for garnish

Method

Place all ingredients except for the thyme and sea salt in a large pot. Simmer for 30 minutes to an hour, or until all the vegetables are very soft. Remove the lime and discard. In batches, add the soup to a blender. Don’t fill blender more than halfway. Put a towel over the cover of the blender and put your hand on top to avoid spillage. Put the pureed soup in another pot. Add the thyme and salt to taste. Simmer for ten more minutes. Serve in bowls with a dollop of sour cream for garnish.

  18. Interesting blog post. Things i would like to contribute is that laptop memory must be purchased but if your computer can’t cope with everything you do with it. One can add two random access memory boards containing 1GB each, for example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should check the maker’s documentation for one’s PC to make sure what type of storage is necessary.
