Mushroom soup

Prep time: 10 min
Total time: 40 min
Serves: 6

Mushroom Soup

12 cups - assorted fresh mushrooms (cremini, shiitake, portobello, oyster, king oyster)
3 tbsp - butter
2 cups - onions
4 cloves - garlic, minced
1 cup - sherry or white wine
2 tbsp - flour
2 sprigs - fresh thyme
1 - bay leaf
4 cups - vegetable stock
2 cups - cream

Just before cooking, wash the mushrooms by dusting them with flour and then rinsing them in cold water. The flour acts as an abrasive to help remove dirt. Towel dry the mushrooms and roughly chop them.

Melt butter in a large soup pot on medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until the onions are golden brown. Turn up the heat, add the mushrooms and sauté until the water in the pot evaporates and the mushroom are well browned.

Add the sherry and simmer until it reduces to one-quarter of its volume. Sprinkle the flour on top and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until the flour is cooked.

Add the thyme, bay leaf and stock. Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 -12 minutes. Turn off the heat and purée the soup with an immersion blender.

Add the cream and bring the soup back up to a simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in warm bowls.
