champignon mushroom soup with chives and croutons

Cream of Mushroom Soup

  • 15 mins
  • 11 ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs unsalted butter
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1 1/2 lbs mushrooms, sliced
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 5 tbs flour
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1-2 tbs dry sherry
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried

This creamy flavor filled soup is nothing like that stuff in the can.

 

  • In a large saucepan on medium heat, melt the butter.
  • Add the garlic and onions and saute for about 3-5 minutes until soft. Take care not to burn the garlic.
  • Add the mushrooms, salt, pepper and lemon juice and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are soft and have released their liquid. About 5-7 minutes.
  • Sprinkle in the flour a little at a time, stirring to prevent lumps.
  • Add the stock, cream and sherry and stir well to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and coo for another 5-7 minutes or until thickened.
  • Add the fresh thyme.
  • Serve warm with crusty bread and a salad.
