A Super Quick Creamy Mushroom Soup

A Super Quick Creamy Mushroom Soup

At this time of year I like nothing more than a warm soup for either lunch or dinner. There’s something comforting in a hot, steaming bowl of soup. To be honest, I’m not a fan of mushrooms let alone mushroom soup from a tin. It always tastes quite artificial to me. 

When I decided to try this new soup I was a little apprehensive. On a Saturday, when my little family are having their usual cheese and homemade pickle sandwich, I will make myself a soup. I normally make my quick soups with butter beans. They make the soup creamy and they are great if you are gluten intolerant like me. 

Butter beans have all the B vitamins your body misses when you don’t eat wholegrains. They are also a great source of fibre and these soups always fill me up until dinner. My little family didn’t try this dish but I did. Although, I don’t normally like mushrooms I thoroughly enjoyed this soup. Well worth a try if you’re a mushroom fan.

A Super Quick Creamy Mushroom Soup

A Super Quick Creamy Mushroom Soup is a simple recipe that was so easy to do. As I mentioned earlier, I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms but this was delicious. The best part is it could be made in advance of a meal, frozen and heated when needed. It was a filling meal for a lunchtime but I think it would also make a good light dinner too. However you decide to eat this meal, as always, enjoy.
