  • 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

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!
