I'm still on a soup kick. It helps to keep the weight off while i'm not putting in the usual amount of time on the bike.
Last night it was Mushroom Leek Soup time. Here is my winged recipe. If you make it, be sure to adjust the amounts/ingredients to suit your personal taste.
Let me know how it turns out. Or if you have any other soup ideas or how i can improve this one, let me know!
Mushroom Leek Soup
1 kg mushrooms - sliced
5 leeks - sliced 0.5 cm thick

pinch of nutmeg
pinch of red pepper powder (optional)
green scallion - sliced 0.5 cm thick - optional or garnish
