This is a lovely entree and is very easy to prepare. It is adpated from a recipe in the Australian Women's Weekly "Cooking for Couples" cookbook, published in 1982 and still used frequently!

Really tasty! I used some large portabello mushrooms and all the flavours came together so well. Only change I made was not to blend the soup but instead chopped the mushrooms into about 1cm cubes, I always like soups where the main ingredient stands out a bit. It had both a creamy taste along with a 'meaty' mushroom flavour which I loved.
