Creamy Mushroom Soup

Creamy Mushroom Soup

This creamy, yet hardy soup, but can also be used as a base for other recipes like Green Bean Casserole too.  I loved the thyme with it, and even the truffle oil made it more decedent. The ladies were huge fans!
 
  • Ingredients:
  • 2 pints cremini (baby bella) mushrooms, sliced

     

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed from stem
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
 
Serve with: (optional) 
Toasted Garlic Baguettes/croistini
Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
Truffle Oil 
Fresh Herbs: Thyme, Chives, Parsley, etc. 

Directions: 

In a large pot, heat butter over medium heat. Add onion and saute for about 5 minutes. 


Increasing the heat to medium-high and add mushroom.  Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring until the mushroom have released their liquid.


Add remaining soup ingredients to the pot, except cream. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and simmer or until the mushrooms are cooked through. 


Add cream and warm through. Adjust seasoning. 

 Transfer half of the soup to a separate bowl/dish.  Using the immersion blender, purée half the soup. (It would be easiest to use a blender if you have one, instead the hand blender.) 


Combine puréed half and removed half. (note: you can make this chunkier or completely creamy at this stage, just depending on how much of the soup you puree.) 







Top soup with any optional toppings. Serve warm.
