  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup carrots peeled and diced
  • 1 cup onions sliced
  • 1 cup sliced leeks halved and sliced
  • 3/4 cup sliced celery
  • 3 large garlic cloves coarsely chopped (approx. 1 and 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 pounds mushrooms rinsed and thickly sliced*
  • 6 cups chicken stock or approx. 3 (14.5 ounce cans)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  • Melt butter in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add carrots, onions, leeks, celery and garlic. Cook and stir until tender, but not browned, approximately 10 minutes. Add thyme, mushrooms, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Heat until a soft boil, then turn down to low heat, cover and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, ladle into bowls, and serve.


*Rinse and slice mushrooms approximately 1/4" thick. Feel free to use a combination of mushrooms. In this recipe, I used white and cremini mushrooms.
