Mushroom Soup

There is a lot in this recipe that I substituted. It was probably not as good as the original recipe, but it was still pretty darn good. Experimenting can sometimes give good results. This is one of them.

WHAT YOU NEED

- 1/4 cup of butter (I used margarine)
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 cup half/half. (I used 2% milk)
- 2 tbsp of flour
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 2 cups of mushrooms (I used regular white ones)


On medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms and onion and let them sautee for about 5 minutes, or until they're soft.







Add the flour and mix until evenly blended. It will make a sticky paste.








Stir in the chicken broth and cook while stirring until it starts to boil.








Add the half-half (milk), salt and pepper.

Bring to the point just before boiling.


TIP:
Stir often. Heated dairy will create a film on top or burn at the bottom if not stirred.



Serve right away and store any left-over quickly in the fridge.









You can try it with different kinds of mushrooms. There are many, so try the ones you like!

  1. Can I replace the mushrooms with chicken and the milk with lobster?
