Walnut Mushroom Soup ( this recipe requires a blender)

So my Mom's best friend came and spent the night with me last night and I made dinner, well sort of it was more like I made soup and reheated some pizza from earlier in the week, but it was some darn good pizza- kinda like this soup, you've gotta try it. Here's what you need:

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 med onion, chopped
1 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 tsp dried basil
2 veg bouillon cubes
1 1/2 cups water
2/3 c almond milk
1/2 c walnuts, toasted
1/4 tsp salt

Heat oil in a pan over med heat. Sauté onions and mushrooms, reserving one cup of mushrooms to blend with walnuts. Cook 5 minutes or until softened. Add a cup of water, bouillon cubes and basil to the pan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer. Add remaining water, mushrooms, milk, walnuts and a pinch of salt to blender jar. Secure lid, if using a Blendtec select the "batters" setting. Pour walnut mixture into pan. Allow soup to simmer a few minutes before serving. Serves 2-3. Enjoy!

This recipe comes from my fresh blends cookbook that came with my Blendtec.
