Decadent Mushroom Soup

We've been sick and soup is so cozy and comforting. I got tired of chicken noodle, so decided it was time to make a grown up soup.

If you love mushroom soup, this one's for you! Chunky pieces of mushroom and a wonderful decadent broth. It's easy to make, but feels fancy.

Decadent Mushroom Soup

2 Tbsp Butter
8 cups Mushrooms, Sliced (any kind)
1 Onion, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 cup Flour
3 cups Vegetable or Mushroom Stock
1/2 cup White Wine
1 cup Milk or Half & Half

Sour Cream & Parsley for garnish

In a large saucepan or skillet, melt butter. Add sliced mushrooms and onions and cook until they start to brown. Add garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and flour and cook for 1 more minute. Slowly add 2 cups of stock and stir until boiling and thick. Add remaining stock & wine and bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes stirring occasionally. For a thicker soup, remove and blend 1 cup of soup and add back to the soup. Serve hot with cream and parsley.

Happy November!
