Mushroom Soup

David’s dad used to make hamburger patties smothered in cream of mushroom soup.  I on the other hand have only done it with marmite gravy.  Tonight I decided to make mushroom soup to go with it.  I thought it was delicious, though I always manage to feel guilty after eating creamy soups.  After potato leek soup I swear I need to diet for a month, and this is the same way.  😛

Homemade Mushroom Soup


8 ounce package mushrooms, sliced

1/4 cup onions, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

2 Tablespoons olive oil

3 Tablespoons flour

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup evaporated milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Put olive oil, mushrooms, onions, and garlic in pan.  Cook until onions are soft, add 2 tablespoons of flour and blend well.  Pour in 2 cups of chicken broth and stir frequently until it begins to thicken.  Stir in milk and remaining tablespoon of flour.  Stir constantly until soup thickens more (it will seem like it’s not thickening, but just keep stirring a few minutes longer).
