Creamy Mushroom Soup

Mushrooms, especially Shittake, are known to stimulate the immune system. Keeping your immune system alert helps to protect your health. Mushrooms 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 – rustica, portobello, oyster, shittake, chestnut and the common mushroom. Fresh herb like chives, parsley or tarragon really make a difference and satisfy your taste buds.
