Cream Of Mushroom Soup From Scratch Gluten Free

Tuesday, May 8, 2012
I had told you not to long ago I have this little soup habit!
Ok maybe a medium sized soup addiction..Please don't tell my husband I really don't want to quit my habit and go to soups anonymous.
I happened to have ordered more mushrooms from the farm last week not noticing I still had 1 pound of criminis still in the fridge..Oops! Dang it! I guess we will just have to have soup for dinner since I still had left over stock from making Italian Wedding Soup. Even Mas loved this soup, the kid had seconds and he's always the one who eats the least!

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil and butter until onions start to caramelize.
Add chopped mushrooms, thyme, salt, pepper and saute.
Mushrooms should start to become brown.
Add 4 cups chicken broth, and 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce and  bring to a simmer, turn heat to low. Simmer soup covered for 1/2 hour.
Add 4 cup soup mixture and puree in the blender.
It will look like this.
Add puree back to the soup and return to a simmer over low.
In a small bowl add cornstarch. Stir in 1/4 cup of broth at a time, making sure the cornstarch is lump free between additions. In total you will have added 2 cups stock.
The mixture will look like this.
While stirring pour in the cornstarch mixture. Return to a simmer over low heat and cook an additional 5 minutes while stirring.
Remove from heat and add parsley.
(At this point the soup was delish, I almost didn't add the cream!)
Then add cream, half & half or half and half & half greek yogurt.
(I used 1/2 half &half  and 1/2 greek yogurt this time to cut back on calories. The greek yogurt does leave a little tang to the soup which cream or half and half alone would be a bit sweeter. Hubby and kids said they liked it with the yogurt.)
It should look like this.
So good!
