EasyPreparation time: 10 minutesCooking time: 15 minutesServes 4 - 6
Ingredients:2 medium onions, finely diced4 tablespoons butter1 lb / 450g button mushrooms, thickly sliced2 tablespoons flour2 cups chicken stock (made up with stock cube or powder)2 cups milk½ cup white wine (optional)½ cup loosely packed fresh parsley, choppedground black pepper to season
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a pot. Gently fry the onions over a low heat until they are soft and a light caramel color. This helps to give flavor to the soup. Fry for about 5 minutes
- Add the other 2 tablespoons of butter. Turn up the heat and add the mushrooms. Fry for about 2 minutes until they are slightly brown. (Avoid burning the butter). You don't want the mushrooms to become all gray and watery - this is why I advocate your cooking them over a high heat for a short time. This way, they retain their shape and look appealing in the soup.
- Add the flour and stir for about one minute.
- Slowly add the chicken stock, and then the milk and wine. Add the parsley. Stir well to avoid lumps. Cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked through and the flavors have melded. Try to keep the soup just below the boil (although not grave if it does boil).
Mushroom Soup - Vegetarian OptionSubstitute the chicken stock for vegetable, onion or mushroom stock.
