Soup 2- Mushroom Soup

The book says: Using a mixture of mushrooms give this soup character. This makes a flavoursome light meal served with fresh crusty bread.

After muldoonigatawny we decided to make a simpler soup, therefore a basic mushroom soup seemed like an obvious choice. It was pretty straightforward and the ingredients were cheap to buy. This was probably because I could only get my hands on the most common of all the mushrooms- the button mushroom. It probably would be tastier if you used a mixture like the book suggests but you may have aleady gathered I don’t give a shitting shit what the book says! F the police!…anyway. It turned out to be lovely, very simple but delicious flavours and has lasted leyla and I all week at work. Peeling the mushrooms was indeed quite long tings because there must ahve been about 40 mushrooms that went into it but it was worth it. I added parsley and chives which seemed to work.

So on with the rating. I have a theory that because it’s just a mushroom soup, it’s a bit like a foundation GCSE, maybe if there were such a thing as a soup gcse, mushroom soup would definitely be foundation level stuff. Therefore even at it’s very best I am going to have to give it:

Laura rating:6 out of 10 ladels
Leyla rating:7 out of 10 ladels

This isn’t to say it wasn’t great, i just don’t think it had the capacity and complexity to reach the heights of say….a mulligatawny.
