Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup

Warm up your home on a chilly day with a mug of this classic mushroom soup. The leek provide a lovely subtly and balances the earthiness of the mushrooms while thyme enhances the flavour of all ingredients and provides an herbaceous aroma. Top with wild rice for texture and a touch of fibre.
