I often use my slow cooker during the fall and winter- I love fixing dinner in the morning and knowing it will be ready whenever we settle down to eat that evening. But some times I forget, or we decide spur of the moment that soup is called for. This mushroom soup is thrown together with homemade stock that real foodies and GAPSters always have on hand and doesn’t require a long cook time.
We often eat soup out of coffee mugs. We have different colors and my children love choosing the color of their mug, and it’s easier to sip the broth that remains from a mug than from a bowl. Serving soup in different containers is a great way to vary up the intro diet. Pureed soup can even be sipped out of a wide straw or lidded coffee up.
I also have been adding a tablespoon of grassfed beef gelatin to our soups this winter, my kids were becoming prone to nose bleeds and this seems to help.
Are mushrooms okay for intro? I’m not quite sure- we included them but if you’re very sensitive you may want to wait until at least the later stages, same with the lemon juice called for in this recipe.
