Cream of Mushroom Soup

This was prepared by La .  And it was so delicious.  Very filling and very yummy.  I had it with a slice of brown meal bread.


Button Mushrooms - 5 large - finely chopped
Garlic pods - 3 finely chopped
Onion - 1 small finely chopped
Butter - 1 tbsp
Refined flour - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Cream - 2 tbsp (optional)
Mixed Italian seasoning - 1 tsp (optional)
Pepper - to taste - be liberal
Salt to taste
Water - 2 1/2 cups

Put mushrooms in a pan for about 30 secs along with half the garlic and Italian seasoning - basically some oregano, garlic powder
Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil.
Drain the mushrooms from the stock.  Keep stock and mushrooms separately.

In a separate pan, add the butter, the onions and remaining garlic
Stir till onions turn translucent.
Add the flour slowly, mix.  Ensure no lumps.
Mix in cold milk
And after about 30 secs add the stock
Bring  to a boil.
Add the mushroom, salt and pepper to taste.
Add more water to bring to soup consistency.
Simmer for a while.

Remove and serve with a dollop of cream.  Have with soup sticks or bread.
