Ingredients

  • 100 g salted butter
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, in one piece but slightly crushed
  • 500 g white button mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 dl white wine
  • 3 dl mushroom stock
  • 1 Tbsp concentrated chanterelle stock, or other concentrated mushroom stock
  • 1 dl dried mushrooms, divided (can be omitted)
  • 2.5 dl cooking cream
  • bread, for serving

Instructions

  • Heat the butter over medium heat in a pot large enough to hold all the ingredients.
  • Add in the garlic cloves and chopped onion. Cook until the onion has softened a bit, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add in the mushrooms and cook until slightly browned and softened, 3-5 minutes. 
  • Raise the heat slightly, to medium-high, add the white wine and let cook for a minute.
  • Pour in the mushroom stock and concentrated chanterelle stock and add in half of the dried mushrooms, if using. Cover and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. 
  • Take off the heat, remove one of the garlic cloves and mix with an immersion blender to desired consistency.
  • Put back on the heat and add the cream. Stir until well blended. 
  • Taste test and add salt and pepper according to taste. Serve with crushed dried mushrooms on top and with a slice or two of bread.

Notes

  • Dried mushrooms add extra depth of flavor and more texture to the finished soup, but if you don't have access to it they can be omitted without problem
  • Concentrated chanterelle stock can be substituted for any other concentrated mushrooms stock, or omitted
