Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
or butter
1 cup carrots
peeled, sliced
1 cup onions
sliced
1 cup leeks
washed, white and light green parts
½ cup celery
sliced
1 teaspoon thyme
fresh
*
2 pounds mushrooms, wild
cleaned, sliced
*
6 cups vegetable stock
or chicken broth
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
to taste
black pepper
freshly ground, to taste
*
teaspoon chives
minced, or scallions
*
3 tablespoons olive oil
or sour cream if desired

Directions

Melt the butter over medium heat in a large soup pot.

Add the carrots, onions, leeks, and celery, and cook until tender but not browned, about 10 minutes.

Stir in the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, until the mushrooms have softened and released their juices.

If using fresh thyme sprigs tie sprigs together with butchers twine to create a bouquet garni.

Add the chicken stock, thyme, salt and pepper, and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

Remove the thyme sprigs (if you used whole sprigs).

Purée the soup in a food processor or blender in as many batches as necessary.

Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve in warm bowls with a sprinkling of chives and a drizzle of olive oil, if desired.

This is an excellent soup. I used a combination of some chanterelle dried mushrooms and fresh cremini (brown) mushrooms. Very tasty indeed, nice rich flavor and amazing creamy.
