    300 - 500 g mushrooms (wiped)
    2 finely chopped shallots or 1 small onion
    30 g ground hazelnuts or cob nuts
    500 ml vegetable stock
    100 ml almond milk
    5 tbs vegan cream
    a few flat leaves of parsely
    20 g vegan margerine plus 1 knob
    a few drops of balsamic vinegar
    1 pinch of nutmeg
    salt and freshly ground pepper

    Gently fry the shallots in the vegan butter, add the chopped mushrooms. Continue to
    cook over a medium heat for a few minutes.
    Add the stock, milk, hazelnuts and parsely leaves. Cover and gently simmer for 15 mins.
    Remove some of the stock.
    Blend in a FP. Add cream and a knob of vegan margerine, a few drops of balsamic vinegar.
    Adjust seasoning to taste. If the soup is too thick add extra stock.

    Serve with a drizzle of hazelnut oil (optional) and warm toasted wholemeal pitta bread.

    This looks really good but I am having trouble converting the measurements. What is a knob? What is a FP?

    I'm guessing FP = Food Processor

    A knob of butter = a British term for a small amount which is roughly 1 - 2 tbls.

    Fb = Food processor.

    Thanks! I managed to convert most of it. For anyone else preferring the cups/pounds/tbps conversion,

    1/2 lb to 1 lb mushrooms
    1/4 cup (rougly) hazelnuts
    2 cups veg broth
    1/2 cup almond milk
    1 tbsp margarine + another 1-2 tbsp margarine

    I just made this with roasted and peeled chestnuts instead of hazelnuts. Tasty!

    Yes, chestnuts pair well with mushrooms.

    How did I miss seeing THIS recipe? Just from reading the ingredients, I know it could be almost physically addictive.
