Cream of Mushroom Soup - Better Than a Can!!

The key to this soup is to combine different mushrooms/textures. Use as many kinds as you like, just keep it to 2 pounds. I make this often when I need some good old comfort food.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter
1/4 c
flour
1 medium
onion, finely chopped
1 lb
mushrooms, finely chopped
1 lb
mushrooms, roughly chopped
4 c
chicken broth, low sodium
4 c
half and half
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
ground black pepper
1 Tbsp
truffle oil
1 Tbsp
dried parsley flakes
1 Tbsp
dried basil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt butter in soup pot over medium heat. Add onions, salt & pepper. Saute onions until soft. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes.
2
Add flour, a bit at a time, stirring as you do to prevent lumps.
3
Add broth, a bit at a time, stirring to prevent lumps. After enough broth has been added to make everything liquid, add the remaining broth.
4
Bring to a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer for 5 minutes. This will allow the flour to thicken the soup.
5
Add the cream, basil, parsley and truffle oil. Gently simmer the soup without boiling for about ten minutes to allow the flavours to mix completely.
