4 cups of chicken stock
1 cup of water
1 cup of heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Add the mushrooms sprinkle with salt, the mushrooms will release water, cook it for a while until all the water has evaporated.
Add the chopped onion,add 1 heaping spoon of flour and mix well and cook for 2 minutes.
Add thyme tied up in a string so you can remove it easily once your done, add the garlics, chicken stock and water.
Cook for a while until the vegetables are tender,  you could either add the soup to a blender or use a hand puree to blend it.
