Mushroom soup

Mushroom soup is a simple type of soup where a basic roux is thinned with cream or milk and then mushrooms and/or mushroom broth are added. It is well known in North America as a common type of condensed can soup.

400g mushrooms, finely chopped
50g butter
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
2 garlic clove
900ml chicken stock
2 tablespoons double cream
A pinch of salt and ground black pepper

• Sauté the mushroom with the butter in a heavy saucepan for a few minutes. Add the parsley and cook, stirring, until soft.

• Add the breadcrumbs and garlic, stir and pour in the chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

• Purée the soup in a food processor or blender until smooth. Return to a clean pan, stir in the cream and reheat gently.
