The soups that I usually cook are creamy ones. They can be made from any kind and type of vegetables, served on their own or with some extras.
A nice extra may be an egg, rice, toast, cream puffs or, as I recently discovered, gnocchi.
If you do not own a blender you can skip blending this soup. The taste will remain as delicious as if blended. 🙂
Ingredients for mushroom soup.

How to make mushroom soup with gnocchi.
Pour the olive oil into a pot, fry in onion chopped into small cubes, fresh thyme and sliced mushrooms – on medium heat for about 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, add water, cream, salt and pepper. Cook for another 15 minutes. Blend.
Serve with gnocchi and a spoon of sour cream.
Good to know when making mushroom soup.
If you like you can also add some carrots. They will make the soup slightly sweet.
Best is to use fresh thyme. If You do not have it then dry one can be used too.
