Another soupmaker recipe goodie.
Mushrooms are available here all year round and make fabulous soups. The taste is completely different to anything you can buy in a tin.
This recipe does make for very thick soup when it cools slightly, so you might want to water it down a bit or use slightly less ingredients if you want a more watery soup. The colour of mushroom soup isn’t the most appetising, but the taste more than makes up for that.
It might be too peppery for some, so if you don’t like the strong taste of peppercorns, add less ground peppercorns to give your soup a milder kick.
