1 3/4 oz 49gButter
1/2   Medium onion, finely chopped
1   Clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 1/4 oz 35gPlain flour
30 fl ozs 852mlHot chicken stock
15 oz 426gPortobello mushroom
1 tablespoon 15mlChopped flat leaf fresh parsley
3 1/4 fl ozs 92mlSingle cream
  Salt and pepper

Recipe Instructions

Melt a large knob of butter in a frying pan and gently cook the onion and garlic until softened, covering the pan so they don't brown. Add the flour and cook gently for a minute or so, stirring all the time. Add the stock gradually, continuing to stir. Add all but a large handful of the mushrooms, and parsley and cover. Bring to the boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes until the mushrooms and onions are tender. Leave to cool a bit and then liquidise.

Fry the remaining mushrooms in another knob of butter until they start to brown and add them to the soup. Cook gently for another 5 minutes. Add the cream and season to taste.
