Got excited, I immediately said ‘yes’ from my PR friend Alvin Marayan of PRC, International. But there were too many tasks and other commitments that I had to finish too so I almost unable to join and submit my entry. Thankful, there was an extension given to do so. I had to shoot twice because this is the first time to do a cooking video blog.
I must admit that I have lots of recipes I’m thinking to use as my official entry for the MegaPrimeSOUPrise cook-off, but this recipe actually came first to my mind: Creamy Mushroom Soup. And because it’s one of my family’s favorite soups, I want to stick with it and just put a little twist.
Since it’s rainy season, it’s the season of my favorite fruit as well—avocados. Mind you, I can finish 2-5 kilos (or more) of avocado slices with milk, sugar and ice in one sitting! It’s really addicting for me hahah.
Then I thought of preparing another soup recipes but, thanks to my husband and friend Will Garcia (Chef Will on the Go) for helping me to decide which would be best for my entry.
What do we get from this recipe?
Mushrooms contain low calories and they are fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free. They are also very low in sodium, yet they provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium (8%), riboflavin, niacin, and more.
Mushroom is also one of the best sources of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin C, Folate, Iron, Zinc and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin D, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper.
Since they are also rich in protein, mushrooms can also be a good substitute for meats.
On the other hand, avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including 6% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E, 4% vitamin C, 10% folate, 11% fiber, 2% iron, 6% potassium and 136 micrograms of lutein per 50g serving.
Avocados contain naturally good fats, are a good source of fiber and sugar-free per 50g serving. They easily fit into a Type 2 diabetes and a variety of eating plans.
I also learned that avocados have glutathione, which we all know, of course, that it doesn’t only boost our immune system, but helps us keep a healthy and glowing skin—giving that aura we want.
So, for this soup recipe, it actually gives anyone a healthy treat, from the Mega Prime canned mushrooms to the spices and chicken broth, and from the avocados to the fresh milk. It’s like combining a healthy creamy mushroom soup with an equally healthy avocado smoothie. To make it crunchy, the croutons is the best toppings, though you can opt to topped the mushroom soup with either nuts or Mega Prime whole kernel corns.
