  • 500 g chestnut mushrooms fresh
  • 1 piece yellow onion medium size
  • 1 piece red bell pepper
  • 200 g smoked bacon
  • 150 ml double cream
  • ½ bunch parsley chopped
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1.5 tsp sea salt kosher
  • ½ tsp ground pepper freshly ground
  • 1 tbsp paprika Hungarian sweet
  • 1 tbsp marjoram dried
  • 1.5 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp vegetable mix for soup
  • 750 ml water warm


  • Slice coarse the mushrooms, chop the onion and the parsley, cut the smoked bacon and cut in small cubes the bell pepper.
  • Heat the sunflower oil in a cast iron braiser and fry the bacon for two minutes on medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onion, season it with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and sauté for about a minute. Add the chopped bell pepper and mix it with a wooden spoon.
  • Add about 50 ml of water, put the lid on and pre-boil them over medium heat for about five minutes.
  • Season with sweet paprika, dried marjoram, and then add the sliced mushrooms. Mix them lightly and leave them on medium heat for about three minutes.
  • Fill with warm water, add about 700 ml, season with sea salt, put the lid on and simmer for five minutes.
  • Mix the cornflour with cold water to dissolve and obtain a homogeneous fluid paste.
  • Add the cornflour paste, pour in the double cream, season with the vegetable mix for soups and let it simmer for two minutes.
  • Take the pot off the heat and add the chopped parsley.
  • I served with penne pasta, but you also did it with polenta, rice, or even fresh bread.


  • For vegetarians, you can exclude smoked bacon.
  • For extra flavour, you can add dried wild mushrooms.
