    Fallow moms and dads…this Cream of Mushroom Soup is for you! Every now and then we need to give ourselves a treat – we deserve it after all! And this gloriously creamy and rich soup with a hint of Marsala wine is just the ticket. It’s packed with punchy flavors: the earthy mushrooms, a good kick of garlic and onion, delicate herbs, plus that heady finish from the wine.

    This is one of those dishes I love to make for me and my husband when it’s just the two of us and we can enjoy something a little more sophisticated!

    So, how to cook Cream of Mushroom Soup?

    Steps to make Cream of Mushroom Soup

    1

    Cook the onions and garlic

    5

    Place a large saucepan over a medium to high heat and melt the butter and oil together. Sauté the diced onion for 2 to 3 minutes until soft, before adding the garlic and sautéing gently for a further minute.

    2

    Cook the mushrooms

    10

    Tip the mushrooms and half of the chopped thyme into the pan. Cook for five minutes, then add the wine and cook for another 3 minutes.

    3

    Thicken the soup and add the stock

    5

    Scatter the flour over the mushrooms and combine. Add the stock, stir thoroughly to remove any lumps and bring the mixture to a boil. Once it reaches boiling point, lower the heat and add the seasoning and beef cubes.

    4

    Cook the soup

    15

    Put a lid on the pan and leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes until it thickens. Stir every now and again to stop it from sticking to the bottom.

    5

    Add the cream and season

    1

    Once thickened, lower the heat again and stir in the cream. Leave the soup to simmer gently for another couple of minutes, adding more seasoning if required.
