DIRECTIONS

  • Saute chopped mushrooms in olive oil over high heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir as little as possible so that they brown, not steam.
  • Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Melt butter over medium-low heat.
  • Add onions and garlic.
  • Cover and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  • Add the broth, half and half, sherry, thyme, and bay leaf.
  • Stir well and bring to a boil.
  • Lower heat and cook uncovered for 15 minutes.
  • Add the bread pieces, stir well, and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • Discard the bay leaf.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until the bread has dissolved and the soup is smooth.
  • (You can also do this in batches in a blender or food processor, but use caution to avoid burns.) Add the reserved mushrooms to the pureed soup and heat through.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
