Cream of Mushroom Soup

Mushrooms are a family favourite. My husband and son love mushrooms. So when I wanted to make a quick lunch for them, i made this soup. Paired with some homemade bread and pasta and it was a complete meal.

Ingredients (Makes 2 bowls)

Mushroom 3 cups
Onions 1/4 cup
Butter 2 tbsp
Flour 2 tbsp
Milk 1.5 cup (or cream)
Water 1 cup (or stock)
Basil 1 tbsp (or thyme)
Dried herbs a pinch
Pepper a pinch
Garlic powder 2 pinches (or garlic pods 2)

salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Add the mushrooms to a microwave safe bowl and cook till it is done. I left it for about 12 min. Once it is done, chop it into smaller pieces if need be.

2. In a pot, add butter. Add in the chopped onions.

3. Once sauted, add the mushrooms and saute for another minute. Now add the flour and stir for a minute.

4. Add the water or stock a little first. Stir till it creams up. Add more and keep stirring.

5. Then add the dried herbs, garlic powder and pepper. Mix well. If you are using garlic, add it with onions.

6. At this stage, i took about a cup of the mix into a mixie and blended it. Add back to the pot. If you have a hand blender, you could just go in and give it a rough blend.

7. Now add the milk and simmer till it is heated up.

8. Add in the basil leaves and mix well.

Serve with some crusty bread or a garlic bread.
