With the nights drawing in and a nip in the air - a soup packed with warmth and healthy fats is the ideal lunchtime option. It can be made in advanced and kept in the fridge or freezer, to reheat at any time. 

Gluten Free, Low Carb & Paleo Friendly 

Serves 2

What You Need: 


  • Approximately 130g shiitake mushrooms, washed
  • 1 large leek washed 
  • 1 litre good quality chicken stock (we love Borough Bone Broth)
  • Fresh thyme leaves, approximately 1 TBS 
  • Cashew nuts (roughly a small handful)
  • Hunter & Gather Extra Virgin Avocado oil
  • Himalayan salt and pepper to season

Optional: serve with a dollop of Avocado oil mayonnaise for extra creaminess 


What You Do: 


  1. Roughly chop the prepared mushrooms and leek
  2. Gently sautée the mushrooms and leek in a pot with a little avocado oil until softened 
  3. Add the chicken stock and thyme leaves to the pot and gently heat through
  4. Add the cashew nuts 
  5. Simmer for a further 20-25 minutes
  6. blend the soup mixture together using a handheld stick blender
  7. Season with salt and pepper 
To serve, drizzle with some avocado oil and if desired, a dollop of avocado oil mayonnaise

Good timing — just about to make some soup today! Thank you for mentioning putting some of your delicious avo mayo in the soup at the end. Had never thought of that as a way to add creaminess. Cannot wait to try this one!
