- 1⁄2 Spanish onion (diced)
- 1 tablespoon butter

- 2 cups water
Directions See How It's Made
- In a soup pot, heat butter and olive oil.
- Add scallions and onion. Cook until translucent.
- Add mushrooms and salt. Salt will help release the moisture from the mushrooms and aid in cooking. Cook until the mushrooms become tender.
- Add the all purpose flour to create a roux. Cook to get rid of the raw flour flavor. Keep stirring to avoid sticking.
- Add water and cream. Stir to combine and place the lid. Cook until a boil.
- Switch off the gas and remove the soup pot. With the help of a hand blender, blend this mixture until smooth.
- Place the soup pot back on the stove, place the lid and bring to a boil.
- Garnish with ½ Tsp of grated Parmesan cheese or chopped chives.
- Feel free to use a blend of button and creamini mushrooms.
- A slice of fresh, toasted baguette compliments it to perfection.
