Ingredients

16 button (white) mushrooms, thinly sliced 220 g
1 clove garlic, pressed or minced
1/2 leeks, thinly sliced 150 g
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 8 g
1 tbsp rice, long grain 12 g
2 cups chicken broth 500 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 tbsp sour cream 30 mL
2 tbsp chives, fresh, chopped [optional] 6 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Thinly slice the mushrooms; press or mince the garlic; discard the dark green part of the leeks, keep the white and light green parts, then slice them thin.
  2. Melt the butter in a pot or saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the leeks and garlic, then sweat about 10 min until they are softened.
  3. During this time, heat the oil in a separate pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté them in batches, so that they will turn golden-brown rather than 'boil' in the water released during cooking. Take the mushrooms out of the pan as they become golden-brown and set aside.
  4. When the leeks are softened, stir in the flour. Cook 2 min, with stirring, then add the rice and mushrooms (you may keep some mushrooms aside as a garnish). Pour in the broth, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer about 15 min, until the rice is cooked. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Purée the soup in a blender, then distribute it into bowls. Garnish each bowl with a spoonful of sour cream, the optional chopped chives, and reserved mushrooms. Serve.

Soup is delicious, but it is soooo much work slicing the mushrooms! Buy pre-sliced, it will save you some grief!
