Stove Top

Ingredients

4 tablesp.
butter
1 lb.
fresh white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 small
onion, diced
1/2 tsp.
salt
1/8 tsp.
black pepper
3 cloves
garlic, minced
6 tablesp.
all-purpose flour
4 cups
chicken broth
1/2 cup
half-and-half cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a stock-pot, melt the butter over medium heat.
2
Add the mushrooms, onion, salt, and pepper. Sauté vegetables until tender (about 10 minutes.)
3
After 9 minutes of sautéing the mushrooms and onions, I then add the garlic, and continue sautéing the vegetables for 1 more minute.
4
Add the flour, stirring constantly, and until the vegetables and flour has thickened. (Mine always seems to thicken immediately.)
5
Gradually stir in the broth, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes; stirring frequently.
6
Slowly stir in the half-and-half, and simmer an additional 5 minutes, or until the soup has thickened and is heated through.
7
Ladle soup into bowls or mugs, and serve immediately.
