Equipment

  • Saucepan
  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 500- gram mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or dry thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 Cup vegetable stock or broth
  • 1 Cup milk

Instructions

  • Wash, clean, and roughly chop the mushrooms.
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan. Add finely chopped garlic, onion, thyme, and saute for a minute to release the aroma and infuse the flavor in the oil.
  • Add chopped mushrooms, and season with salt. Saute till mushrooms are caramelized and all the liquid is evaporated. Remove half of the sauteed mushrooms.
  • Blend the removed mushrooms to a smooth puree or paste. Set aside.
  • Add vegetable stock to the remaining mushrooms, stir to combine, and close the lid of the pan. Cook mushrooms for 5 - 6 minutes over medium heat to soften a bit.
  • Open the lid, add milk, mushroom puree, and pepper. Stir to mix, and simmer the soup for 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Garnish soup with chopped parsley.
  • Serve healthy mushroom soup warm with toasted bread slices.

Notes

  • I have used button mushrooms to make this soup. You can use any variety of brown or wild mushrooms to make this soup. 
  • While sauteeing, no need to brown the onion or garlic. A quick sauteeing is fine to infuse the flavor into the oil. 
  • Make sure milk is at room temperature and not cold. Do not cook the soup for too long after adding the milk. 
  • Adjust the quantity of liquid according to how thick or thin you like soup.
