It is sad to say but the cold autumn evenings are here. On the other hand it is quite nice to cuddle up in the sofa with candles, a blanket and a bowl of warm soup.
- 600 g Champignons, cut in pieces (you can of course use other mushrooms as well)
- 2-3 Garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 Onion, chopped
- 2 dl White wine
- 5-6 dl Mushroom stock (or more depending on wich consistency you prefer)
- 2 dl Cream
- a dash of Brandy
- 5-6 Champignons, cut in half
- 1 Onion, sliced
Fry garlic, onion and champignons in butter until they have colour and you can notice the mushroom scent. Add white wine and mushroom stock and let come to a boil. If you don’t have access to mushroom stock, use chicken stock. Let boil for 15-20 minutes.
Mix the soup with an electric mixer or a blender. Add the cream and a dash of brandy. If the soup is to thick add extra stock or just plain water. Season with salt and pepper.
Fry a sliced onion together with the 5-6 champignons until they have a really nice brown colour, and use as decoration.
Serve together with a glass of white wine and newly baked bread spread with a tasty butter and flakes of salt.
