Brie Soup with Pears and Porcini Oil
This soup is rich in calcium and protein from the brie. However it also contains a lot of fat, so make sure to practice portion control when eating it.
Serve this soup with some homemade whole wheat bread for added texture and flavor.
Rinse scallions, celery and pears and cut into pieces. Rinse and peel potatoes and cut into pieces. Heat butter in a saucepan and saute scallions. Add celery, pears and potatoes and cook briefly. Add broth and simmer for about 15 minutes. Puree soup with a hand blender and heat through. Add more broth if needed. Add crème fraîche and diced brie, season with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a pan and saute mushrooms for a few seconds, simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool and puree.
Pour soup into bowls and serve drizzled with porcini oil.
