I couldn’t figure out how to make it all gray or the mushrooms all rubbery, but this was pretty good soup, anyway.
- onions (I used Vidalia)
- butter or margarine
Chop the mushrooms and onions and cook them in margarine (in a saucepan) until the onions are tender and the mushrooms are reduced. Add more margarine, if necessary (and when is it ever not necessary?) and stir in the flour. Cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add the milk and thyme and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly, until the soup is thickened and glossy. Season to taste. I ground some pepper on top of mine.
