How To Make cream of mushroom soup

  • 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.
