An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Looking for a healthy, hardy, tasty, filling soup? Well if you aren’t, you should be! This is a great recipe that you can dress up as a casserole if need be!
Mushrooms are an overlooked ingredient that are incredibly good for us. They are cancer preventers, they are high in vitamin D, and there are studies that have shown substituting mushrooms for various foods (like red meat) result in significant weight loss.
11 oz cream of mushroom soup
24 oz green beans (chop into small pieces if you like, or don’t)
1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 onion, chopped
10 oz chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp pepper
Salt to taste
Parmesan or Swiss cheese
Sauté chopped onion in butter and oil, then add chopped mushrooms.
Cook until soft then add green beans, water, salt and pepper. Cook another 2-3 minutes. Pour in mushroom soup (I used Trader Joe’s condensed portabella) and letter simmer for ~ 5 minutes.
You could stop there and enjoy a delicious green bean and mushroom soup. Or you can take it up a notch…
Pour soup in to casserole dish and cover with the greatest gift to mankind: Cheese. I used Parmesan, but you use what feels right.
Bake in oven for ~ 20 minutes (until top is golden brown) at 375 degrees. Let cool. Enjoy.
