Cream of Mushroom Soup

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 2-3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3-4 cups chicken stock
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup half and half or whipping cream
  • olive or canola oil, for cooking

How to Make It

Heat a drizzle of oil and about half the butter in a pot set over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for a few minutes, until it's soft. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the mushrooms, the rest of the butter, and pull the thyme leaves off their stems and add them.

Cook until the mushrooms release any excess moisture and they start to turn golden. Shake the flour overtop and stir to coat the mushrooms. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Cook for a few minutes, until slightly thickened, then season with salt and pepper and stir in the cream.
