Mushrooms are nutrient dense, making them a good soup idea for toddlers. One of the reasons I love them is that they are one of the only vegetable foods with a relatively high Vitamin D content!. A. Bisporus or commonly known as white mushrooms or button mushrooms are ideal for making soup for toddlers. I sometimes use King trumpet or king oyster mushrooms which have a buttery flavour. This simple mushroom soup recipe is sauteed onion and mushroom in butter, blended with cream to form a thick creamy mushroom soup any toddler would love.
How to Make Mushroom Soup
If you read my mushroom curry recipe you would know that we often got our supply from the garden, usually after heavy rain there would be a large mushroom to be harvested. These days I stick to shop or market bought ones because I cannot distinguish between poisonous and non poisonous ones. Apart from mushroom curry, Amma was fond of making chicken and mushroom pies.
The filling was a thick creamy chicken and mushroom sauce. This recipe
uses similar technique of first braising the onions with a little black
pepper then adding mushrooms until golden brown.
Cream is added to give flavour and texture. I blend the mixture once the cream has boiled and top it with a few fried mushrooms. My son is finally starting to enjoy different textured food so I opted for a mushroom topping, if you have a fussy toddler, keep it simple.
How to Store Mushroom Soup
This mushroom sup can be stored in the fridge for a day or two and in the freezer for longer. Simply defrost when needed.
