How To Make Mushroom Soup

How to make mushroom soup – Ingredients:

1 onion, chopped
3 tbsp butter
454g mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
3 tbsp flour
1/2pt milk mixed with a carton of double cream
salt and pepper
parsley to garnish


Gently cook the onion in the butter until soft, not browned and then add the sliced mushrooms and continue to cook gently for a few minutes.

Remove from the heat and add the flour, stirring well. Add the milk and cream mixture and mix throughly.

Return to the heat and bring to the boil. Simer gently for around 10 - 15 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked.

Blend until smooth in a liquidiser and season to taste.

Serve with hot, crispy croutons and garnish with the parsley.

I also like to add a knob of butter towards the end of cooking to add even more flavour. There will be a film of butter on the top of the soup. You can also make this soup more chunky by not liquidising for as long.

Serve with lots of chunky, crispy bread and butter.
