Mushroom Soup

The weather in Delhi is rather unpredictable these days. Hot at times, muggy at others, the rain just plays hide and seek with us.

Last Sunday, it was extremely hot when we left for the picnic. But soon after S hurt his foot, it started pouring. We got back home after a trip to the hospital and I wanted some soup. I had a packet of fresh mushrooms in the fridge and decided to make some hearty, filling soup.


200g Button Mushrooms, chopped
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 large Onion, chopped
1 cup Milk
1/4 tsp Parsley
1/4 tsp Basil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion. Fry till the pieces turn translucent. Add the mushroom pieces and fry for 1-2 minutes.

Blend the onion mushroom mixture in a liquidizer with a little milk. Transfer this to a vessel and add the remaining milk and bring to a boil. Add the parsley, basil, salt and pepper. Enjoy this soup hot with some Garlic Bread.
