Mushroom Bisque

This is one of the recipes which we have been given permission to reproduce by another of the UK recipe sites, Recipes4us. It is a big site with a wealth of information and recipes. If you would like to have a look at the website click here.

I asked to be able to feature more of their recipes as I consider that they have an excellent selection which are clearly laid out and interesting - making them one of the leading UK recipe sites.

2 tbsp Vegetable Margarine
350g / 12oz Mushrooms, finely chopped
1 tbsp Paprika
1 teasp Cayenne Pepper
600ml / 1pt Vegetable Stock
225g / 8oz Soft or Medium Tofu

  • Melt the margarine in a medium saucepan then add the onion and sauté for 4 - 5 minutes

  • Add the mushrooms together with the paprika and cayenne and stir to blend. Reduce the heat, cover and continue to cook gently for 9 - 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, place the tofu, oil and lemon juice in a liquidizer or food processor and blend until smooth.
