Cream of Mushroom Soup !


I think most of us like Mushroom soup.Cream of mushroom is a thick,appetizing soup with a pleasing flavour.Served hot,it's one of the best soups to cherish !


Ingredients

200 gms Mushroom,cleaned and chopped
1 medium onion,chopped finely
2 garlic cloves,crushed
2 cups of vegetable stock
1 cup whole milk
1-2 tsp pepper powder
2 tbsp all purpose flour/maida
olive oil or law fat butter,as required
salt
1 tsp lime juice and few parsley leaves to garnish
1-2 tsp fresh cream to garnish (optional)

Method

Heat oil/butter in a medium skillet and roast chopped onion and garlic till light brown.Add half portion of mushroom to this and sauté for 3 minutes.Reduce the heat and add flour to this.Roast in low heat till the raw smell disappear.Now slowly add vegetable stock and mix well.Be careful not to form lumps.Add pepper powder and salt and bring to a boil.Simmer for 10 minutes.Switch off and let it cool.Meanwhile chop the remaining mushrooms finely.Grind the cooled soup in a blender till soft and strain to a medium pot.Add chopped mushrooms and milk to this and bring to a boil again.Simmer five more minutes till the soup gets thicker and creamy.Garnish with lime juice and parsley.You may use fresh cream as well.Serve hot.
