Cream of Mushroom Soup


1 Package of Mushrooms (white or baby bella)

2 Cloves of Garlic (Chopped)

1 Small Onion (Chopped)

4 Tbl of Butter

1 Tbl of Olive Oil

5 Tbl of Flour

2 C of Chicken Broth

1 C of Half & Half

Salt & Pepper (to your liking)

Fresh Thyme

In a skillet heat 1 Tbl of butter & 1 Tbl of olive oil and then add your sliced mushrooms, garlic, & onion. Cook until tender and onions are starting to become translucent. Remove from the pan and set aside. Do not blend your mushrooms up, its a waste of good fresh mushroom :), and do not wash your skillet. 

Using the same skillet add 3 Tbl of butter and once the butter has melted add your 5 Tbl of flour and whisk quickly until mixed. Add 1 C of chicken broth and continue to whisk, once it becomes thick again add the other 1 C of Chicken broth and continue with the 1 C of half and half in this fashion. Continuing to use your whisk seasoning your base with salt and pepper. Add your mushrooms and mix well finishing off your soup with fresh thyme and enjoy! 

This is my own adaptation of another recipe I found which required blending and some other techniques that just seemed ridiculous, i believe if you are going to blend good mushrooms like that you should just buy the canned, sorry.
