  1. Thinly slice the mushroom caps, discarding the stalks.
  2. Melt the butter in a heavy-based pan and cook the spring onion, garlic and lemon thyme, stirring, for 1 minute, or until the garlic is golden. Add the mushroom and salt and white pepper. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the mushroom just softens. Add flour and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the stock, stirring continuously. Return to the heat and bring to the boil, stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Very nice soup with a good depth of flavor. I used chopped shallot instead of green onion and chicken stock in place of vegetable broth. I coarse chopped the mushrooms instead of slicing, for ...

This was the best soup I ever made. I used chicken broth instead and a little more flour. We Loved It!!!!
