How to Make Creamy Mushroom Soup

Creamy and luxurious, with just a hint of spice and herbs, this recipe for mushroom soup is best made with wild mushrooms for an intense and earthy flavor.
1 lb. fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 qt. chicken broth
2 cups light cream
1/4 tsp. ground thyme
1/8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. salt

1. While mixture is simmering, clean mushrooms by wiping them with a moist paper towel. Trim off stem ends and chop mushrooms into pieces. Place in food processor or blender, along with a bit of the broth. Puree.

2. Add pureed mushrooms to broth. Stir in the cream. Add seasonings. Simmer an additional 4-5 minutes, but do not allow to boil. Remove from heat and serve.
