Healing Collagen Mushroom Soup

Age-defying mushroom soup

What you need:

I love this quick and easy mushroom soup – it gives me the sumptuous taste of mushrooms with a helping of protein and age-defying collagen in a bowl.  Mushrooms are great for immunity, and the collagen does loads of things as you know, not least it helps heal the lining of your gut, also helping you to better digest your food.  You could have it cold if you don’t want it hot in summer, but soup for me needs to be hot, even in summer.

Another nice thing about this mushroom soup is it helps with weight management, high in antioxidants and are anti-inflammatory.  The addition of collagen is just utterly divine (get your pure hydrolysed collagen from my online store here).

  • 1 tablespoon of delicious grass fed butter
  • 1/2 a cup of chopped onions
  • 4 big cloves of minced garlic (must be fresh and minced)
  • 2 big sprigs of thyme on the stem
  • 3 cups of mushrooms of your choice, just roughly chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable stock (I have a yummy scrummy one in my online store)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/3 can of organic coconut milk (you’ll find this in the online store too)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of Pure Hydrolysed Collagen from my online store
  • Himalayan salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
What you do with this:
  1. Heat your butter in a large pot over medium heat and add onions, garlic and season well.
  2. Now add in the thyme from your garden, stir gently

  7. Stir in the creamy coconut milk and collagen, and season further to your liking
