Mushroom and Tomato Soup / Domatesli Mantar Çorbası

Mushroom Soup doesn’t have to be creamy every time. Try this recipe with tomatoes next time you plan mushroom soup. You will find it much lighter then the creamy version.

I am often reluctant about giving salad and soup recipes; as during daily life these two dishes for me are things that you prepare with what is available at home. It can be few carrots, some mushroom or cucumbers and tomatoes. It is the same with this soup; you can be very flexible. You can choose to add meat or chicken stock if available or you can go ahead and use plain water as mushroom has enough nutrients in itself.

You can add dissolved corn or wheat starch to make your soup thicker; or you can skip this step totally. I have not exaggerated the spices; keeping a moderate list of only salt and black pepper. However you can go ahead and add some dry mint or thyme and some red pepper flakes.

You will obtain a rich and filling soup for sure. Enjoy.
