Meatless Monday: Cream of Mushroom Soup

This soup is so yummy and quick to make! I had some for lunch today! I love to eat it over rice.

Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 c. mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/2 c. onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP butter
2 TBSP olive oil
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 c. broth
1 c. milk
Saute mushrooms in olive oil and butter until soft. Add garlic and onion. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Stir in spices. Add flour to mixture to make a paste. Add broth and milk. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes or until soup is almost to your desired consistency. It will thicken slightly as it cools. Enjoy!
You can also cut this recipe in half to use as a pasta sauce. If using as a sauce, just simmer rather than boil, so your sauce doesn't end up too thick.
