I love soup. I love making it, and eating it, and serving it to family and friends. Soup is basically love in a bowl.

And this, is one of my favourite soups of all time. I love the intensely earthy flavours in this smooth cream of mushroom soup – it’s a classic. Make the most of mushrooms with this comforting mushroom soup recipe made with cream, onions and garlic. Serve for lunch or as a starter with crusty bread.

The secret to this deep, rich soup is a long, slow carmelisation, the key to unlocking the mushroom’s magic. This is just pure essence of mushroom.

Pure mushroom magic

Melt butter in a pot over medium-high heat. Once butter has melted, add mushrooms with a pinch of salt, cooking until the mushrooms have released most of their juices, about 10 minutes. Then, reduce heat to low. Continue to cook, stirring often, until juices evaporate & the mushrooms are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Set aside a few mushroom slices for garnish later, if desired. ⠀
Mix onion into mushrooms and cook until onion is soft and translucent.
Add flour into mushroom mixture, stirring often to remove raw flour taste. Add bay leaves, thyme/tarragon, garlic cloves and stock. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for 30 minutes. ⠀
Remove bay leaves. Puree soup with a blender until smooth and thick.⠀If the soup is too thick for you, add some water/more stock to thin the soup to the desired level of thickness.⠀
Stir in cream if using.
Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper.⠀
Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with reserved mushroom slices.
