Cream of mushroom, mustard and tarragon soup


Two of my fellow food bloggers, Sue over at Heaven on a Plate and Janice at Farmersgirl Kitchen have launched a monthly cook along for any Nigel Slater recipe, I have quite a few of his books in my extensive cookery book collection, Nigel Slater is my style of cook, cooking seasonally and using what he grows and purchases locally, he is the only TV cook my husband will watch, that says a lot.

When I saw this challenge I knew I had to take part, so a quick rummage in the bookshelves and I came up with this hybrid combination inspired by mushroom soup from Real Fast Food ( a very early Nigel) pg 164 and Roasted mushroom with mustard and tarragon in Kitchen Diaries 1 Pg 279.

A delicious easy creamy mushroom soup with the great inspired additions of a touch of dijon mustard and the herb tarragon,  I didn't have any fresh tarragon as perscribed so I used dried and it worked fine.Nigel's recipes are of simple but always inspired and the mustard and aniseed back note of the tarragon combined well with the earthy mushrooms.

Mushroom soup is the soup I make most often as its so loved here, we had it on Christmas day. But would never have thought of these flavour combinations Linzi.
Thanks for entering, its looks really very good.

I'm ashamed to say that I gave away my copy of Real Fast Food. I found the recipes too simple! Now I appreciate that simplicity so it's good to see that you have used it as inspiration for your Mushroom Soup. Thanks for joining us for Dish of the Month I hope you'll come back next month :-)
