HOMEMADE CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP
CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP
recipe from food.com
8 ounces fresh mushrooms (I used rehydrated freeze dried mushrooms)
2 tablespoons onions, chopped (I used rehydrated minced dried onion)
1 -2 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons butter
2 -3 tablespoons flour (seperated)
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup light cream or 1 cup evaporated milk
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (I used closer to 1/8 tsp. of fresh ground)
* I did end up adding a little cornstarch mixture at the end in order to thicken it up a bit for the recipe I was using it in.
1 Cut the mushrooms into slices.
2 Melt butter in large frying pan. Add in onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook until onions are soft.
3 Blend in 2 T. flour and stir.
4 Add in the chicken broth and heat until slightly thickened while stirring frequently.
5 Stir cream with additional 1 T. flour and seasonings. Add in cream to soup. Heat to thicken while stirring frequently.
6 Serve and enjoy!
