Ingredients

  • 200 g button or chestnut mushrooms cleaned and sliced
  • 200 g fresh spinach washed
  • 200 g potatoes (approx 1 medium) peeled and roughly diced
  • 2 tablespoon rapeseed or sunflower oil
  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 600 ml vegetable stock (from stock cube is fine)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • plant based cream and extra virgin olive oil to drizzle over

Instructions

  • Prepare vegetables as per ingredients notes above.

On the hob method

  • Heat up the oil in a large pot and add onion, garlic, mushrooms and potato. Sautee for approx. 10 min until vegetables start to soften slightly. 
  • Add dried thyme, some salt and pepper, stock and bring it to boil. Lower the heat and simmer for approx. 20 minutes or until veggies are soft.
  • When the soup is almost ready add washed spinach and let it wilt. It won't take long at all, couple of minutes is all you need here.
  • Turn off the heat and puree the soup until smooth or to desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning if required.
  • Serve with a swirl of plant based cream and drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy!

For Froothie Evolve users

  • Put all the ingredients with the exception of spinach into Froothie Evolve cooking jug and put the lid on. Taste and adjust seasoning if requred.
  • Turn the machine on and choose Smooth Soup option from the LED display menu on your blender. Alternatively, instruct froothie via voice activation saying "Hey Froothie, Make my Soup".
  • Froothie Evolve will start pre-programmed soup making function that will take 30 minutes.
  • Once Froothie signals the end of the programme, open the jug and add spinach (you might have to do it in batches) pushing it gently into the liquid with special tamper tool.
  • Close the jug again and hold the Pulse button for few seconds until the spinach has been pureed and mixed in with the rest of the soup. Repeat until you've used up all the spinach.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning if required.
  • Serve with a swirl of plant based cream and drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy!
