Mmmmmm...mushroom soup. Ever since I was a little girl I have loved it. I can even eat the canned kind.
I prefer homemade though and it is so easy to make. Just slice up a pound or so of mushrooms.
Put them in a pot with 6 cups of chicken stock and a sliced onion. I can get mushroom powder here so I add a couple teaspoons of it for a richer flavor. I also had mushroom bouillon and added 3 tablespoons of it to the pot.
Bring it to a boil and then simmer it until the mushrooms and onions are cooked. Remove it to a blender and blend until smooth.
In the same pot, melt a few tablespoons of butter.
Add 1/4 cup of flour.
Some salt and pepper.
Whisk over medium high heat to make a roux.
Add 1 cup of cream.
And 1 cup of milk.
Whisk in the pureed mushroom and warm over medium low heat. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
Serve with a drizzle of truffle oil. Mushroom heaven.
