In Season: Mushrooms


Did you know that researchers have found that just a handful of mushrooms have approximately 12 times more of the powerful antioxidant (L-Ergothioneine) than wheatgerm?  Did you know that antioxidants slow the ageing process from the inside out, which not only affects your appearance but more importantly, helps prevent degenerative disease.


I didn't!  Thank God I'm already a fan!


The nuts add a little texture to this soup which I quite enjoyed, however if you're after a silky smooth soup then either omit the nuts or invest in a super duper blender.
