Ah, a new year… A new and fresh start. And itโ€™s naturally that with the start of the new year our thoughts turn to New Yearโ€™s resolutions. My resolutions are to eat as healthy as possible, be more active, be good mommy to my daughter and spend more time with my loved ones. Do you have any goals for this year?

  
Although snow has melted, itโ€™s still chilly in Dublin. And what can be better than a hearty bowl of soup to warm you up? As a first recipe in the new year, I would like to share another of my favourite soup recipes. Enjoy!
 

Creamy Mushroom Soup
Prep time : 15 min
Cooking time : 30 – 35 min
(Serves 4)
Ingredients:
350 gram fresh mushrooms, washed and sliced
1 medium carrot, thinly sliced
1 onion, thinly sliced
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
650 ml vegetable broth
2-3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
150 ml milk
Salt, pepper to taste
 
Method:

Pour in vegetable broth, bring it to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
In a small bowl mix flour and milk until smooth. Gradually stir in to the soup, continue to simmer for further 5 minutes or until thickens. Season if required.

    It has been cold in San Diego too, for our standards, so this sounds like a perfect soup to warm up with!
