Ingredients

  • 1 leek, thinly sliced (only white part)
  • 8 pcs mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 & 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 & 1/2 cups cannellini beans, cooked, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp thyme, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat up extra virgin olive oil in medium-sized pan, over medium-high heat. Once oil is ready, add leeks and cook until slightly soft.
  • Add mushrooms and ¼ cup of the broth. Mix to ensure that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. 
  • Once the mushroom is slightly cooked, add the cannellini beans, remaining broth, thyme and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. 
    NOTE: At this point, you can pick some mushrooms and set them aside for garnish later.
  • Turn the heat to low and use a hand mixer to blitz the soup. Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer to puree the soup.
  • Bring the pureed soup to boil, adjust seasoning. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer on serving bowls, top with mushroom (from step#3), drizzle some olive oil and garnish with chopped parsley leaves. Serve.
