Mushroom soup for me is the ultimate in comfort food, using this Nutricook recipe you can cook a delicious soup in eight minutes. By sautéing the mushrooms, the liquid is released, giving you a more intense flavour, balanced by the creamy ricotta cheese.


  • 500g of chestnut mushrooms (keeping some to serve)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 garlic chopped cloves Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds
  • 750ml of hot vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp of mushroom soy sauce
  • 250g ricotta cheese


  • 1
    Place the mushrooms into a food processor and blitz until finely chopped.
  • 2
    Select the sauté button, sauté the mushrooms until they have released all their liquid, (about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally).
  • 3
    Remove the mushrooms from the pot and set to one side.
  • 4
    Add the onion and garlic to the pot, sauté for two more minutes.
  • 5
    Season then add the cumin seeds, vegetable stock, mushroom soya sauce and cooked mushrooms.
  • 6
    Secure the lid and release valve, select the manual programme, adjust the time to eight minutes.
  • 7
    When the time has lapsed quick release the pressure.
  • 8
    Release the lid away from you.
  • 9
    Add the ricotta cheese: using a hand-held blender blitz the soup until smooth.
