I love mushrooms. I love the smell and the taste of it. So you can imagine how much I love this soup. Its one of my favorite soup recipes……MMMM I wish I can have some right now 😦

Mushroom Soup

2 pounds white or brown button mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup of butter
1 onion chopped
1 tablespoon of flour
Thyme
4 garlic cloves
4 cups of chicken stock
1 cup of water
1 cup of heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice the mushrooms, add  butter to a large sauce pan and cook on medium heat until it melts.
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.
Add the cream and bring it back to the heat for 2-3 minutes and serve 🙂
