Creamy Mushroom Soup

This is not your Campbell's out-of-the-can soup. This is SO good, and comforting. My sister made this soup when we were younger and finally found the recipe for me. It did not disappoint. I don't care if you don't like mushrooms- this soup is fantastic.

Creamy Mushroom Soup

6 T butter
half of one onion
2 cloves garlic
6 T flour
2 cans chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1/8 t thyme
salt and pepper

4 cups mushrooms (sauteed)
1/2 cup cream

Saute onion and garlic in 6 T butter until limp.
Add flour and cook 3 minutes
Stir in broth
Add seasonings and mushrooms
Add vegetables and cook 20 min
Remove bay leaf and add cream
Simmer 5 min

Garnish with parsley and chives.
