Cream of Mushroom Soup

2 tbsp. butter
8 oz. mushrooms, minced (use your fav...I love cremini)
1/4 c. onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. parsley
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tbsp. whole wheat flour or GF thickener
2 c. chicken stock
1 c. milk, yogurt or cream (raw grass-fed of course)

Heat butter in 2 quart saucepan. Add mushrooms, onions, garlic, parsley, nutmeg and pepper. Sauté until mushrooms soften and lose their liquid. Sprinkle flour over mixture and continue cooking for several minutes.

Add stock gradually, stirring constantly. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Puree mixture in blender or food processor, then return to the saucepan. Stir in milk and heat through.

I'm not sure how big a can of soup is, so you'd need to cut this recipe, or freeze the excess for later.

I make this in LARGE batches and freeze in pint jars...which equal a can of soup.
