  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh mushrooms sliced
  • 4 cups broth
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 cup whole milk or heavy cream or more to taste


  • Saute the onion in the olive oil in a large soup pot with the cover on over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Add the carrots and cook, covered, over medium-low heat for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and mushrooms, and continue to cook, covered, over medium-low heat for another 10 minutes. The mushrooms will release their juices during this time.
  • Add the broth and salt, and simmer gently in an uncovered pot for 30 minutes, or until all the vegetables are very tender.
  • Puree the soup with an immersion blender or in a food processor. Stir in the milk or cream and serve warm.
