Prepare the onion, garlic, mushrooms and parsley as above. Then heat most of the dairy free margarine on a hob and cook the onion and garlic gently. Cover and allow to become translucent, about 5 minutes. Then stir in flour, cook again for 1 minute.
Measure out the prepared stock and pour in slowly, stirring continually. Add only half of the sliced mushrooms and half of the fresh parsley. Cover, allow to boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
After 10 minutes, check the mushrooms as they need to be tender. If so, turn off the heat. Then use a blender or liquidizer with a soup detachment to blend the soup mixture until thickened.
In a separate plan and with the remaining dairy free margarine, cook the remainder sliced mushrooms on a low heat for up to 5 minutes. Then add these to the blended soup. Allow the soup to simmer for a further couple of minutes. Stir in as much yoghurt as you would like to use. Taste and add salt and black pepper and further yoghurt as necessary. Remove from heat and serve topped with the fresh parsley.
