This is the best Cream of Mushroom soup ever, hands down!  It's full of flavour, but still light enough as I use light cooking cream (I do cook with a conscience when I can :)

It's funny I was not that into soups until I started making my own. And now I can't get enough of them. It's the perfect comfort food after a busy bee day.

As mentioned in recent posts, there are loads of exciting things happening at the moment so I don't have that much time on my hands. This quick and delicious meal is just perfect for me and the little familia.

1.   In a pot, heat a little olive oil and sauté the onions until they are translucent.
2.   Add the mushrooms and toss them around for a few minutes, just to release their juices.
3.   Add the hot stock and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
4.   With a hand blender, puree the soup until smooth.
5.   Add the crème, and simmer for another 10 minutes. Season to taste and serve with a sprinkle of parsley.
