Decadent Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup

The Rockin Vitamix soars again!  Really fast, delicious, creamy, deep and rich flavors and simply decadent.  Damn, this is really good!!

The fact that I can make a creamy soup without cream, never ceases to dazzle me!!

Soup-er easy....Here you go!

Decadent Mushroom Soup
The Chef In My Head
4-cup servings (very rich) as an appetizer or first course

1/2 stick unsalted butter
1 T. olive oil
1-8 oz. pkg. Cremini mushrooms, sliced
1-8 oz. pkg. White button mushrooms, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
1 carrot, diced
2 springs fresh thyme
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 Cup dry white wine
1-1/2 C vegetable stock
2 tsp. Chicken soup base (optional)

In a large saute pan, over medium heat, melt butter along with olive oil.  Add all ingredients with the exception of wine and stock.  Saute to allow all flavors to blend and vegetables to soften, not brown.

Add wine to deglaze pan.  Transfer mixture to Vitamix.  Turn on, rotate dial to 10 and switch to high.  Slowly add vegetable stock and soup base if using through lid.   Blend for 5-6 minutes or until heavy steam escapes top.

Pour into serving cups/bowls.  Garnish with Creme Fraiche or Sour Cream if desired along with fresh cracked pepper.  Enjoy!
