  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 500gms/1lb fresh mushrooms
  • 4 ozs/6 level tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 ozs/3 level tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 pints/3 cups chicken stock

  1. Prepare the mushrooms by removing the stems from the caps.
  2. Cook the chopped onions in about 1 oz butter until soft but not browned, adding garlic just before onions are done.
  3. Remove from heat and blend in the flour, mixing in well.
  4. Mix in the boiling stock, and return to heat.
  5. Mix in the mushroom stems and season to taste.
  6. Simmer for about 30 minutes, partly cover the pan with the lid.

  12. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  13. When almost ready to serve, beat the egg yolks with the cream in a mixing bowl.
  14. Add a little of the soup mixture to the egg and cream mixture, mixing it in well. Add more until you have about 1/2 pint.
