Forgot to take the bay leaves out

I made mushroom soup and put two bay leaves in it.

Completely forgot about them and whizzed it all up. Is it going to be safe to eat or do I have to bin the lot?

It won't poison anyone. Taste it but I'd say it won't be too strong.

Bay is not poisonous, just a bit bitter and can be tough if left whole. In a big batch blended up it will probably be fine, just taste and season accordingly, if it's really strong add some sugar to counter?

Thank you both. The flavour is lovely, it was two bay leaves to 600g mushrooms so it’s not even really noticeable but there’s something sharp in the texture - I had a teaspoon to check - and I’m not sure if it’s in my head. I debated sieving it but then I’d lose any mushrooms bits. I was so stupid. Ragingly sleep deprived and so forgetful. But I hate wasting things so I’ll try it again in the morning and whizz some more to see if it helps.

Choking hazard?? Can you sieve it?
