How to cook

Prepare ingredients

Start cooking

  • Heat a splash of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion, celery, garlic, parsley stalks, thyme leaves and mushrooms, pop the lid on and cook gently until softened.
  • Spoon out 4 tablespoons of mushrooms, and keep for later.
  • Pour the vegetable stock into the pan and bring to a boil over medium heat, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Season to taste with sea salt and black pepper, then whiz with a stick blender until smooth.
  • Pour in the cream, bring just back to the boil, then turn off the heat.
  • Toast the ciabatta on a hot griddle pan, then top with most of the reserved mushrooms and drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Spoon the soup into bowls, garnish with the chopped parsley and remaining mushrooms, and serve with the ciabatta crostini on the side.
