  • 1 lb (450g) mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 4 cups (1 liter) chicken or vegetable broth

  • 1 cup (250ml) heavy cream

  • 2 tbsp (30g) butter

  • 2 tbsp (30g) all-purpose flour

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms to the pot and continue to cook until the mushrooms have released their liquid and are softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the flour is fully incorporated.
  • Pour in the broth, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender to puree until smooth.
  • Return the soup to the pot and stir in the heavy cream. Heat the soup gently until hot, but do not boil.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve hot, garnished with chopped parsley if desired. Enjoy!
