  • 300 g / 12oz Mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 50 g / 2oz Butter
  • 1 Large onion finely chopped
  • 2 Cloves garlic crushed
  • 25 g / 1oz flour
  • 400 ml / ¾ pt milk
  • 400 ml / ¾ pt chicken or vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper
  • A few chives snipped to garnish (optional)


  • Melt the butter in a pan.
  • Add the onion and garlic and sweat under a lid gently on a low heat until softened, stirring occasionally (about 10 mins).
  • Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook gently for 5 minutes.
  • Add the flour and stir for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the stock, milk and seasoning.
  • Liquidise and adjust seasoning if necessary, bring back to serving temperature.
  • Serve garnished with snipped chives (optional).


I find a stainless steel hand blender invaluable for soup making as there is no need to wait for the soup to cool down and it negates the need to transfer it to a liquidiser.
