This mushroom soup is a fairly light recipe, counting around 200 calories per serving. Mushrooms are very low in calories but high in fiber, which gives them satiating power. The crème fraîche provides creaminess and deliciousness, but if you wish, you can replace it with low-fat cream or even natural yogurt to lighten the recipe.
Tips and variations
This velouté can be decorated in different ways to make it even tastier. For example, you can add a touch of grated truffle when serving, to add a touch of sophistication.
Another piece of advice: don’t hesitate to vary the pleasures by using different kinds of mushrooms depending on the season: porcini mushrooms, chanterelles, oyster mushrooms… and why not a mixture of several varieties!
Finally, to add a little crunch, you can sprinkle your velouté with a few toasted flaked almonds or small homemade croutons… My little ones love them!
There you go, now it’s your turn to play in your kitchen!
