  • 1.5 lbs baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 6 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 onion chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 celery stalk chopped (about ½ cup)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and celery and sauté until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms, thyme, marjoram and stir for about 10-15 minutes, until mushrooms have softened and reduced in volume. Sprinkle four over the mixture and stir for about 2 minutes to allow the flour to cook.
  • Stir in chicken broth and simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, until the mixture has reduced.
  • Reduce heat to low and stir in heavy cream. Allow mixture to simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy.


  • Make the soup in a heavy bottomed pan or dutch oven. This will help to distribute the heat more evenly so that the bottom doesn't get scorched.
  • For a smoother soup, use an immersion blender or standing blender to blend the soup together.
  • Taste the soup before serving and adjust the salt and pepper to suit your tastes.
