Ingredients
  • 2 cups onion, chopped
  • ½ cup carrot, sliced into half moons
  • ½ cup celery, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups mushrooms, diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup flour (use GF flour if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme (I highly recommend using fresh thyme and not dried)
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground Kirkland Signature Tellicherry Pepper (use more if you like more pepper)
  • ¼ dry sherry
  • 4 cups Organic Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups cubed cooked turkey or chicken
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • fresh ground Kirkland Signature Pink Himalayan Salt
  • fresh chopped Italian parsley

Instructions
  1. In a large sauce pan over medium heat, saute the onion, carrots, celery and butter for 5 minutes or until soft.
  2. Increase the heat to medium high and add the mushrooms and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes stirring frequently.
  3. Sprinkle the flour, thyme and pepper over the vegetables. Cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
  4. Deglaze with the sherry and then simmer until nearly evaporated.
  5. Stir in the broth, turkey/chicken and cream.
  6. Bring the soup to a low boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Season with salt to taste.
  8. Lastly and in my opinion very importantly, season with the fresh chopped parsley.
