Recipe Ingredients:

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme or oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds white mushrooms, sliced (about 9 cups)
1 (14.5-ounce) can ready-to-serve vegetable or chicken broth
1 cup white wine or water
1 1/2 cups lowfat milk

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt but­ter. Add carrots, onions, garlic, salt, thyme and pepper; cook, stirring often, until onions just begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, broth, and wine; bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, remove 1 cup of the vegetables; set aside.
  2. In a blender or food processor place half of remaining soup from the saucepan; puree until smooth; remove to a bowl; repeat with remaining mixture; return entire pureed mixture to saucepan; stir in milk and reserved vegetables. Simmer just until heated through, about 5 minutes. If desired, garnish with thinly sliced green onion.

Makes 4 servings.
