This soup has such a lovely flavour of mushrooms with the hint of spice, it is so delicious served with a dollop of sour cream and crusty bread


  • 2  teaspoons butter
  • 1 small onion roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ cup parsley
  • 200g button mushrooms, chopped
  • salt and black pepper
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch cayenne pepper,
  • 100 ml vegetable stock
  • 100 ml milk
  • 50g sour cream (reserve a dollop)
  • Chopped chives for garnish


  • Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the onions, garlic & parsley and cook over medium heat until the onions have softened, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms, the nutmeg and cayenne pepper and give it a good stir, then season with salt & pepper, cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the milk and stock, bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cook for 4-5 minutes.
