Mushroom & Leek Soup

 

Method:


Combine the broth, ginger, and spring onions in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer.

In a sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the leeks and sauté for five minutes, then add the mushrooms and continue sautéing for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vegetables, along with any oil left in the pan, to the soup.

Simmer for 5 minutes or until vegetables are just tender. Adjust seasonings and serve.
