Mushroom Dome for Click

If you want to have a WOW effect when you are giving a party I would suggest make this. You will enjoy seeing the expression on your guests when you bring this to the table.
I made this for the Christmas eve party. My husband brought this soup to the table from the kitchen ( Ladies I do have to admitt for the christmas eve party i my hubby was giving a good helping hand)
All the guest went WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When we took out the soup from the oven it was looking so good that before my hubby brought it to the table he made my daughter announce it ( i know i know crazy but fun) So my daughter was standing near the door and Saying Ladies and Gentle Men the Soup is Here :-)))))

And then when they saw the wow started :-)
I didn't know about the click event for january. Later i came to know it is Liquid this month so I am sending this to Bee and Jai from Jugalbandi After sending this to them I will be thinking hmmmm what will they choose for next month :-)



Almost Done

Ready to go in the oven

Ingridients. For 8 person
Mushroom 1kg ( you can use different kind of mushrooms. I used a variety )
Juice of half a lime
2 small onions cut finley
Butter 20 gm
White Wine 250 ml
Vegetable broth
1 litreTruffel 1 Optional
Salt and peper to taste
Cream 400 ml
1 egg lightly beaten
Puff pastry 2 roll

Clean the mushrooms and cut them fine.
Heat a pan with the butter , add the onions fry them lightly then add the mushroom and the lime juice. Fry for a while. Add the Wine, brothe, salt and pepper. Let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Now mix the soup with a mixer. Put it back into the pan and add the cream.
Let the soup get cold.
The soup have to be cold other wise the puff pastry will get soggy.

Divide the soup into the individual soup bowls . Add the sliced truffels if you are using them.

Roll out the puff pastry and cut 8 disks with a diameter slightly larger than the soup dishes.

With a bit water wet the sides of the soup bowls so the pastry can stick to it. Close the soup dish with these disks by applying light pressure on the edges so the pastry sticks. If you have pastry left you can make some decorations to add on top.
Brush with the egg .

Pre heat the oven to 200°C .Bake the soups for 15 to 20 minutes until the pastry rises and browns.
When finished, remove from the oven and serve immediately
