I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup-Freezes Well


  • ½ lb pound cremini mushrooms (baby portabellas), sliced or diced (your preference)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tbl olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour (I use gluten free flour)
  • 1 tbl parsley
  • ¼ tsp thyme
  • 2 cups mushroom or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup low fat milk (I use almond milk, plain)
  • ¼ cup dry white wine (optional)


  1. Pour olive oil in a medium sized soup pot and heat over medium high heat.
  2. Add mushrooms and onions and saute until tender.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and add the wine to deglaze the pan. Return the pan to the heat and let the wine simmer until almost gone, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add parsley, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir in flour until all the vegetables are coated.
  5. Stir in the vegetable broth and milk and simmer about 5-7 minutes on low, do not boil, keep the heat low and just simmering until thickened.
  6. Serve and ENJOY!
