Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

Mushroom - leek soup



Once, I tried the association of leek and mushrooms in a risotto, and I loved it! Here is another version for the cold days. I found the recipe in a German traditional cook book.


I think it makes a great starter!


Ingredients (for 4 people)
500 g white mushrooms (fresh if possible)*
1 leek
75 cl stock cube
20 cl milk
20 cl heavy cream
3 soup spoons flour
1 shallot

* 250 g if you use tinned mushrooms, but I recommend fresh ones because the taste is really better

Preparation
Chop the shallot; slice the leek and the mushrooms. (If you think there are really a lot of
mushrooms, don’t worry, in no time there will be 2/3 less in volume!)
In a casserole dish or a sauce pan, melt some butter, brown the shallot and then the leek and brown for about 2 min.
Add the mushrooms, brown for 5 min and stir gently. Add 1 soup spoon flour, the stock and the milk. Boil and simmer for 10 min. Stir from time to time. Add salt and pepper.
Add the cream and the rest of the flour, stir and cook for another 5 min. If necessary, add more salt and pepper. Blend with a hand blender. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Bon appétit!!!
