Creamy Mushroom Soup

Mushrooms are known to stimulate the immune system and your immune system needs to be alert to keep you healthy. They are low in carb and rich in B vitamins, selenium, zinc (depending on the soil’s health).

I find some mushrooms really bland so I buy a mix of all types to get that woody deep flavour from the soup. Fresh herb like chives, parsley or tarragon really make a difference. Satisfy your taste buds.
