Cook time: 18-20 minutes | Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup onions, small dice
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds shiitake and cremini, stems removed and sliced thin
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons sherry

Directions

In a large pot melt the butter and olive oil. Add the onions and cook until translucent about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute. Add all the mushrooms and cook until soft about 10-12 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove some of the sauteed mushrooms and reserve to garnish each bowl of soup. Add the chicken stock, heavy cream and sherry and let simmer for 5 minutes. Using a blender puree the soup until smooth.
