A simply delicious, creamy, garlicy mushroom soup.
creamy, mushroom, soup
/ 12oz Mushrooms
/ 2oz Butter
/ 1oz flour
/ ¾ pt milk
/ 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.
