Ingredients List

Get your shopping list ready for our Cream of Mushroom and Leek Soup recipe:

– 500 grams of fresh mushrooms (We recommend using some portobello for their robust flavor, a smidgen of shiitake for an exotic twist, and good old button mushrooms will do the trick too!)
– 2 Swanky, slender leeks
– 3 Cloves of garlic
– 1 White onion
– 4 Cups of vegetable broth
– 1 Tbsp of olive oil
– Salt and pepper to taste
– A dash of fresh thyme
– A whoosh of fresh cream (for vegan alternatives, you can use oat or soy cream)


Making this comforting Cream of Mushroom and Leek Soup is as easy as pie, or in our case, soup:

1. Begin by finely slicing your jaunty leeks and chopping those earthy mushrooms. Chop your garlic and onions too while you’re at it.
2. Fire up your pan, drizzle in that olive oil and wait for it to warm up. Add your garlic, onion and leeks to the hot pan and let them mingle until they are lightly golden.
3. Now’s the time to toss in your mushrooms, let them cook till they release their own juices. Sprinkle in the salt, pepper, and dash of thyme. Give it a good stir and then pour in your vegetable broth.
4. Let your soup bubble away for about 20 minutes on low heat.
5. Finally, when the aroma fills your kitchen and your stomach’s growling, turn off the heat. Please ensure the soup is cooled before you puree it in your blender. Once smooth, return the soup to the stove, add a dollop of cream, and voila! Cream of Mushroom and Leek Soup is served!
