Serves 4

1 large onion, chopped
1 large potato, peeled and chopped
1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
7 cups vegetable stock
4 tablespoons butter
12 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

  1. Place onion, potato, parsnip, and stock in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Let it simmer until all the vegetables are tender.
  3. While the soup cooks, heat the butter in a pan, and cook the mushrooms until golden.
  4. Add 3/4 of the mushrooms to the soup; set the rest aside.
  5. Using an immersion blender, pureé the soup until smooth.
  6. Add cream, and season with salt and pepper.
  7. I love to serve with a sprig of thyme and a glug of amazing olive oil!
