Posts Tagged ‘Mushroom and Hazelnut Soup’

Just had to share this recipe with you.  Seriously, seriously good.  I’ve made a second batch today.

It’s adapted from that book I’ve mentioned before Soups by Tonia George.  She uses two different variety of mushrooms, I just used regular field mushrooms.

I think what makes it doubly nice is the fact that we are using our own hazelnuts that we still have from last year’s harvest.

This quantity makes enough for four.

Mushroom & Hazelnut Soup

Mushroom & Hazelnut Soup

Ingredients:

  • 50 g butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 25 g hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 350 g mushrooms
  • 1 litre vegetable stock (or chicken stock)

Method:

Melt butter and add onion and garlic, cover and cook gently over low heat for 10 minutes to soften.

Wash and chop your mushrooms.  Add to the saucepan with the parsley, turn heat up and cook, stirring regularly for 10 minutes.  Add your stock and cook for another 10 minutes.

While this is all happening toast your hazelnuts and set aside to cool.

When soup is cooked.  Chop your toasted hazelnuts and add about half to the soup.  Either blitz with hand liquidiser or transfer to a liquidiser.

Serve with a sprinkling of the remaining chopped hazelnuts (and/or a dollop of cream).

Enjoy!  And do let us know if you’ve tried it.
