Easy Cream of Mushroom Soup

This is a quick and simple vegan cream of mushroom soup. As herbs or onion or vegetable stock is not used in this recipe, the amount of mushroom is generously more to boost up the flavour of the soup. If the soup is too thick, just thin down water some water. Just be a little careful with the amount of soy milk used, so that it is not too overpowered.

Preparation: 7 mins, Cooking time: 8 mins

Ingredients (serves 2-3)
° 200g white button mushroom, coarsely chopped
° 1½ -2 tablespoons non dairy margarine
° 350ml-400ml water
° 300ml unsweetened soy milk
° 2 tablespoons flour
° salt and pepper, to taste

Method

1. Combine the flour with soy milk and mix well. Set aside.
2. Melt the margarine in a pot over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes or until soften.
3. Add the water, bring to a boil and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Give the soy milk and flour mixture a quick stir, before gradually stir into the mushroom stock mixture over low heat.
4. Return to high heat, stirring frequently until the soup has thickened. Season to taste with salt.
5. Ladle the soup into individual serving bowls, sprinkle with pepper and serve hot.

Hi Winter Chew

Wow, your picture - you look beautiful and lovely :)

All-purpose flour, i happened to have self-rising flour, so i used that.

Corn flour, hmm... nope, i think, the result might not what is desired. Unless use concurrent with flour or heavy cream.

Have a lovely weekend !
