After cooking the vegetables and meat, it was time for a soup. I love soup.
This time I tried something new, something I haven’t done as often, only once or twice. But never with a “wow,mom so delicious” reply.
For this soup I got inspired from two blogs : adihadean.ro with Cream Garlic Soup and ” Bucataresele vesele ” with Mushroom Cream Soup.
What I used from this two blogs ? I combined the garlic idea from Adi with the list of ingredients from Bucataresele Vesele.
Here it is what it came out :
Ingredients ( servings about 8 -10 )
400 gr of white mushrooms
5 piece green onions
1/2 of root celery
2 white potatoes
5 garlic cloves
salt and black pepper
( for the soup I used only 2 potatoes )
I peeled and washed all the vegetables and boiled them in water with 1 tbsp of vegeta ( food seasoning ) until they were very well done ( about 30 minutes )
Drained the vegetables and let them cool but save the vegetable soup for later.
Peal and lightly wash the mushroom and green onions. In a skillet heat 2 tbsp of olive oil and add the green onion, mushroom salt and pepper and saute them for about 3-5 minutes.
Peel and cut the garlic cloves in small pieces. In a large pot heat 3 tbsp of olive oil and add the garlic cloves. Take away from the heat and add 2 tbsp of all purpose flour stirring well and add about 1 ladle of vegetables soup and stir very well with a whisk until smooth and creamy. Add more vegetables soup and place it back on the heat and simmer for about 2-3 minutes until thickens a bit. Set aside.
Using a blander smooth the vegetables adding a cup of vegetable soup. When smooth and creamy add the vegetables smooth to the garlic mixture and bring back to heat on very low heat.
In the same blander place the green onions, mushrooms and some of the vegetable soup and smooth them well. Add the mushroom mixture to the soup and give a good stir. Add more vegetable soup until the desire consistency.
Bon Appetite !!!
