Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


  • 1 large diced onion


  • 3 cloves minced garlic


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1 or 2 pounds sliced mushrooms


  • ½ cup white wine


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour


  • 1 quart of chicken stock


  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream


  • 3 tablespoons finely minced parsley


  • 1 tablespoon finely minced thyme


  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preparation

Step 1


Add the butter and onions to a large pot. Cook over low heat until caramelized, about 45 minutes.


Step 2


Stir in the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes more, until you smell the garlic aroma.



Step 3


Pour in the olive oil and add mushrooms. Sauté on high for 15-20 minutes, until the mushrooms cook down. Stir often.



Step 4


De-glaze with white wine and cook until the wine is absorbed, about 5 minutes.



Step 5


Mix in the flour completely and then pour in the chicken stock. Bring soup to a boil. It should be thick.



Step 6


Puree the soup until smooth with hand mixer or blender.



Step 7


Finish by stirring in cream, herbs, salt and pepper and garnish with your favorite microgreens.
