Procedure

- Clean the mushroom under a water tap and rub away the dirt. Chop the mushroom into small pieces.

- Heat up the butter in a medium pan and cook the garlic and onions until they're soft but not browned.  This should take five to six minutes.

- Add the mushrooms, and cook over a high heat for 3 minutes whilst stirring constantly.

-  Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms, mix well to combine.

- Stir in the flour and mix well, making sure all the mushrooms are well coated.

- Pour in the hot chicken stock and bring to the boil.  Add the bay leaf and simmer for 10 minutes.

- Remove the bay leaf and leave the soup to cool for a few minutes.

- Place the mushroom mixture in the jug of a blender and blend until smooth.

- Combine the soup and cream in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until heated through. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

- Serve with croutons on top or with garlic bread.
