Field Mushroom Soup with truffle oil
Field mushrooms - August we simply had loads growing in the paddocks
2 garlic cloves
sprinkle of sugar
I always have some dried porcini mushrooms in - so i soak a handful - and chuck these in but what i really want is the liquor off the porcini mushrooms to make my stock
mushroom stock (or veggie stock)
Blender - I use my nutri bullet
How to make it
Soften the onion in a little oil (about a tablespoon) - I do this over a low heat for quite a while about 20 mins - I sprinkle a little sugar over the onion and get it all lovely and sticky - I add in the garlic and season.
Soak a handful of porcini mushrooms - these were my great find on Amazon! they keep for ages and I chuck them in everything - best thing is the water that is reserved makes amazing stock.
Add in your field mushrooms - or any mushrooms will do - fry off -
add in your stock - i never add cream i find it spoils the gorgeous earthy mushroom flavour and my husband doesn't like cream - this recipe is so thick it really doesn't need it. But if you want you could add coconut cream - again with mushrooms this fresh I don't like to mask the deep flavour.
transfer your mushroom mix to your blender - blitz for 30 seconds and transfer back to a pan - warm
to serve drizzle over truffle oil if you have it - just is amazing and lifts the earthy flavours
