by Michelle Moroney

Here is a recipe from our menu here at the Cliffs of Moher Retreat. It’s one that we serve on our retreats!

600g button mushrooms


2 red onions finely chopped

3 cloves garlic grated

1 litre of veg stock

3 bay leaves

1 tbls of fresh thyme

Juice of 1/2 lemon

salt & pepper to taste



Heat up some olive oil in a pot adding adding the mushrooms first and stirring quickly for a minute or two.

Then add the onions, garlic, thyme and a bit of salt.

Add the veg stock and bay leaves and simmer for 20 minutes.

Leave aside to cool, remove bay leaves and blend on a low speed so there is a bit of bite with the mushrooms.

Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper a squeeze of lemon


For a creamy taste replace 500ml of the veg stock with milk, or add a dash of cream or mascapone when serving.

If possible try adding some wild mushrooms to the mix for some more defined flavours.Mushroom soup
