  • 4 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 1 sweet onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 5 cups mushrooms sliced
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine or use more broth for an alcohol-free version
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream


  • Fresh thyme
  • Chopped Parsley


  • Place a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, once hot, add the butter and melt.
  • Then, add the diced onion, stir and cook for 1 minute. Add the garlic, stir and cook for 30 seconds, just until fragrant.
  • Next, add the sliced mushrooms, stir and cook for about 8-10 minutes. Add the dried thyme, rosemary, Italian herbs, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • In a large measuring cup combine: 1 cup of broth with flour and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Add the wine to the pot, stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Next, add the broth and flour mixture and stir to combine. The mixture will be thick.
  • Add the remaining broth, little by little, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil.
  • Next, reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  • Reduce heat to low and stir in the cream until fully combined.
  • If preferred, use an immersion blender to cream the soup more, leaving some mushrooms intact.
  • Taste and adjust for salt and pepper.
  • Serve garnished with fresh thyme and chopped parsley.
