Cream of Mushroom Soup

Home made cream of mushroom soup.

Saute half a large yellow onion in butter until translucent. Add 3 cloves of chopped garlic. Next add a package of sliced bella mushrooms (about 1.5 cup). Dash of salt and pepper. Saute until mushrooms are soft. An extra pat of butter might be needed. Add a heavy splash of red wine. In a sauce pan, I reduced about1.5 cup of bone broth to about half and added that too. Let it reduce a bit more and then add about a 1/3 of a cup of heavy cream. Mix well and cook together for a minute or two. Transfer to blender and puree.



I saved some of the  cream of mushroom/onion goodness to spoon over my burger.


 
And lastly a very simple meal of rotisserie chicken with a cucumber salad.


Coming up my thoughts on fruit and "carbs".

Happy Monday everyone

Dan,
I couldn't agree more.
Now if I could only get my hands on some good mushrooms...need a good Seatle farmers market for that one.

cheers,
Marc

Perfect! I've been looking for something like this. I love cream of mushroom, but don't buy canned soups anymore. This looks super-easy to make, and a good accompaniment for meats.
