Vegan Mushroom Soup

Vegan Mushroom Soup

This just randomly appeared at the Irish pub I frequent one day. The same Irish pub that refuses to make any accomodations whatsoever to its menu to allow vegans to have a decent meal. Bam. Out of nowhere. Accidentally vegan mushroom soup. How do you make it? In hot olive oil cook a couple of big leeks with a pinch of nutmeg, finely chopped and seasoned with salt. Add 4 pints of mushrooms that have been very finely chopped in a food processor and a few cloves of crushed garlic. Cook until the water is released and then evaporates. Add a a couple of potatoes, chopped, a splash of chardonnay, a teaspoon or two of thyme and enough veg stock to cover. Simmer, puree just enough to make the potatoes creamy, and serve. Let me tell you, when all you were expecting to be able to eat is French fries and a Bloody Mary, this is the best thing on the planet.
