Greek Mushroom Soup (Recipe)


✅ 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos **FREE Bottle**)

✅ 1 small onion chopped

✅ ½ pound (250 g) fresh button mushrooms sliced

✅ 1 ½ cup (45 g) romaine lettuce chopped

✅ 5 oz (150 g) frozen spinach chopped or 12 oz fresh (350 g)

✅ 2 tbsp fresh dill chopped
✅ 2 tbsp tahini

✅ 1 ½ tbsp lemon plus more for serving

✅ Salt/Pepper


1️⃣ In a medium pot heat the olive oil and sauté the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes.

2️⃣ Add the mushrooms and sauté until liquids have evaporated. Add the lettuce and spinach and continue sautéing for 2-3 minutes. Add about 1 ½ cup water, ¼ tsp salt and simmer for 15 minutes.

3️⃣ Add the dill and heat for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and set aside. Remove 2 tablespoons of the broth/cooking water and set aside.

4️⃣ To make the tahini sauce mix 2 tbsp tahini with 1 ½ tbsp lemon juice mix until it turns white, add 1-2 tbsp of the saved cooking water, and mix well.

5️⃣ Add the tahini-lemon mixture gradually to the soup and mix gently until blended well. Heat the soup slightly at low heat-before serving.

6️⃣ To serve place soup in in a shallow bowl, squeeze some lemon, add black ground pepper. Add a few homemade croutons on top for some extra crunch.
