It's a fabulous Friday, again! Hope you guys have something fun planned for the weekend.

I have planned to sleep my entire weekend off. I cannot wait to hit the bed. This week felt like such a long week. I'm glad it is ending and I get 2 days to rejuvenate and gear up for 2 more weeks of long weekdays.

Since I was short of time this whole week, I've been looking at making quick nutritious meals like this Vegan Mushroom Leek Soup. And it was so perfect for the rainy weather that has wrapped over Bangalore like a blanket. Rainy weather, hot soup and a good episode of Masterchef Australia, is there anything more a foodie needs?

This soup is one of those instant soups that do not come out of a packet or tin, but can be whipped up at home in a very short time. To make this delicious creamy vegan soup, all we need to do is sweat the leek along with some garlic and then add in the mushrooms. Once the mushrooms are cooked, we blend the soup and add in required seasoning. I kept the seasoning simple, just salt and pepper.

You can add in almond milk or regular milk to make this soup creamier. Cheese tastes awesome too. Flavor it with herbs that oregano or thyme, if you'd like a little variety in your soup. Serve it with some buttered croutons when you want to impress your guests or just get your picky kids to eat soup.

And if you know if the debate about whether we eat soup or drink soup has been settled, leave me a comment!!
