Do you love soup? Sometimes it makes the perfect lunch – especially on a cold day! This soup either makes four medium servings which would work well as an appetizer – or two very generous large portions!! The tarragon combines perfectly with the earthy mushrooms for a real taste of France!
How to Make a Low Carb Mushroom Soup
To make the base of the soup, melt some butter and olive oil in a large saucepan. Add sliced white mushrooms, onion powder and dried tarragon. If I'm feeling really lazy I buy ready sliced mushrooms!! Cook over medium heat for ten minutes, stirring regularly.
Remove a quarter of the mushrooms with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add beef stock, bring to the boil, and then simmer for five minutes.
Carefully pour the soup into a blender (I love my Ninja!!!) and pulse until smooth. Return everything to a saucepan including the reserved mushrooms, check for seasoning and add salt and pepper as needed. You can prepare the soup in advance, or serve it straight away!
The tarragon adds some wonderful flavor to the earthy mushrooms – but it doesn't overpower. You could add a garnish to the low carb mushroom soup like some fresh tarragon or a swirl of heavy cream – or keep it simple and eat it on its own!
