Cream of Mushroom Soup


I think soon my blog is going to be over flowing with soups, here the weather has really truned cold, today it was 2°C which is so cold that I am happy to stay inside home if I don't have to go out, which is what I did anyway today, Hans came back home saying it is so cold, his face was even reddish.

Summer or Winter we have a cup of soup for lunch before the main dish. That is a must for Hans, it is like if there is no soup he would say given me tinned soup, which I think is not good at all.
I don't need soup for summer etc.... but when the weather is so cold I am always happy to have a cup of soup.
This is a easy soup and we love it here well H and I love Shyama dislike mushroom but then she is only comming on weekeds from her colleage so there is no need to think if she likes it or not when I make this soup.
When you make this soup just make sure you make it in a big pot as when thesoup starts bubbling up it boils up like milk as there is flour , so if you use a small pot it will over flow.

250 gm Crimin Mushrooms choped ( you can use the normal white ones, but i think this one has much more flavour)
1 medium onion finley chopped
65 gm butter
65 gm flour
1500 ml vegetable broth
200 ml cream
pepper and salt to taste

Heat in a big pan the butter and when it is melted add the onions fry for few minutes, then add the  flour and stir for 2 minutes , so that you remove the flour taste, add the broth mixing vigorously so that you don't get any lumps, then add the chopped mushroom and bring everything to boil, when it starts to boil, lower the heat and let it bubble for 10 to 12 minutes.
Add the cream, pepper and salt and serve with a sprinlikling of parsley.

You are right HC. Soups are to be had during the cold winter months.

I like mushrooms but not so much the soup. But this looks so good though.
