This is an easy recipe for a really good mushroom soup. It's delish!
Things You'll Need
- a box of crimini mushrooms (if you're feeling fancy you can go for wild mushrooms)
- 1/2 a red onion
- a clove of garlic
- fresh thyme
- white truffle oil (it's a bit pricy, but you don't have to put a lot and it will give an amazing taste to so many things you cook)
- olive oil
- 4 to 5 cups of chicken stock
Pour some olive oil in a pan with the mushrooms. Let cook for 10mn. Stir a few times.
Add the chopped red onion, mashed garlic and thyme. Continue to cook on medium/low heat until most of the mushroom juices have evaporated (usually 20-30mn).
Add the chicken stock and leave to simmer 10mn. Add salt and pepper as desired.
Blend all the ingredients in your blender.
Serve in individual bowls and add just a little truffle oil in the middle of each soup before serving. It will give an amazing flavor.
Tips & Warnings
- You can prepare this soup in advance and let it stand. Just reheat it before serving.
- Always add the truffle oil right before serving. It's better to add the truffle oil in individual portions of soup versus in a big bowl.
