Ingredients to make Cream of Mushroom Soup

  • Button mushrooms, halved 10 to 12
  • bay leaves 2
  • Dried Thyme 1 tsp
  • onions 1 medium sized, finely chopped
  • garlic 5 to 6 cloves, finely chopped
  • Black pepper corns 10 to 12
  • Whole wheat flour 2 tsp
  • butter 2 tsp
  • Fresh cream 2 tsp (for garnishing)
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Vegetable stock / chicken stock 4 cups

How to make Cream of Mushroom Soup

  1. Heat butter in a non stick pan. Add bay leaves, black pepper corns, garlic and saute for half a minute. Add the onions and saute till it turns light brown in colour.
  2. Add flour and mix well. Cook on a medium heat till the flour is lightly browned.
  3. Add the mushrooms with salt and mix well. Cook till the mushrooms ooze out water and turn golden brown. Add a pinch of sugar at this stage, as it gives a nice golden colour and a caramelised flavor to the mushrooms.
  4. Pour in the vegetable/chicken stock, a dash of dried thyme and mix well. Cover and cook till the mushrooms are soft and the soup becomes creamier and thicker.
  5. Turn off the flame and remove the bay leaves. Blend this soup with a hand blender or a food processor and serve hot garnished with fresh cream.

My Tip:

Try to use a mild flavoured Vegetable or chicken stock for this recipe, so that it does not dominate the Mushroom flavor.
