Foolproof Mushroom Soup


I bet you’ve tried pureed mushroom soups many times and they may have been delicious, but… Many restaurants and packaged food manufacturers add one thing that can mess up your diet, stomach and even pallet and the ingredient is – cream.

Don’t get me wrong, cream makes everything taste better, but it can also be bad for those trying to lose weight and those with lactose intolerance. Besides that, you don’t really feel that much flavor if your soup is packed with cream.

I have a recipe that tastes almost like the mushroom soup with cream but without it. I have one secret ingredient that actually makes the entire soup. Ready? Check the recipe below then!

Turkey And Spinach Pie

It is hard to cook something special during season transition, since summer products are almost gone from the shelves, and the fall has not even started.

I must say that for a good pie you need a good dough, which takes a lot of time and attention.

Recently I found a perfect frozen puff pastry, which immediately brought my off-season dish to a new level.

Since I attended cookery school there, today we will cook potato flan.
