DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the butter in a large pot over moderate heat.
  • Saute the scallions and garlic until tender but not too brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the flour and cook 2 to 3 minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste.
  • Add the stock and mushrooms and bring to a gentle boil, stirring frequently.
  • Simmer covered for 5 minutes.
  • Puree in batches using an electric blender or food processor.
  • (If you have one, an immersion blender is the best!) Strain, return to the pot and add the cream or half& half, salt, and pepper.
  • Reheat and serve garnished with chopped fresh herbs.
  • Serve with a crusty loaf of French bread and a glass of wine.
