    This is a very rich and nourishing soup that uses only a few ingredients. While I usually use pasta, this also works well with barley or rice.

    Serves: 6 

    • 125g fresh mushrooms, sliced
    • 1 leek, rinsed and sliced
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 cup dry sherry
    • 2 1/2 cups beef stock
    • 2 1/2 cups water
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 125g small soup pasta

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a large pot over medium high heat cook the mushrooms and leeks in olive oil until tender. Add the sherry and reduce liquid by half.
    2. Add the beef stock, water and black pepper. Bring to the boil and add the pasta. Boil gently for 10 minutes, or until the pasta is tender.

    Made it vegetarian. Very tasty soup -- I substituted vegetable stock to make it vegetarian, and it was very good! - 08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. Quick, easy and absolutely fantastic! I used chicken stock, added more mushrooms and added fresh spinach leaves during the last few minutes. Beautiful and everyone loves it! - 08 Oct 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I double the mushrooms and leeks for a chunkier soup. - 08 Oct 2008
