Thermomix cream of mushroom soup


Thermomix cream of mushroom soup.

Starting with a simple ‘roux’ (a mixture of flour and butter), adding a bit of cream and milk, followed by fabulous mushrooms – there you have it: a cream of mushroom soup as good as the one you might have tried in restaurants.

It’s ready in under half an hour and will set you back about 50p per person.

Add a crusty loaf of bread – quick lunch or impressive dinner first course sorted!

For gluten free, replace plain flour by buckwheat.
