Although this soup has cream in it, I wouldn't call it a cream of mushroom soup.The use of mushrooms,fresh herbs, nutmeg and sherry play an important role in making this soup a star. Excellent teamed up with a favorite sandwich, or great pureed. It is very quick and easy and delicious!

In a large saucepan, melt butter on medium- high heat. Add onions, garlic and mushrooms. Cook while stirring until mushrooms reduce to half the size and onions are tender (about 2-3 minutes). Use whisk and add the flour. Whisk until well mixed. While whisking, add the chicken stock slowly, making sure there are no lumps. Add sherry, salt, herbs and nutmeg. Cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in the cream, add more salt if needed and pepper to taste and serve with your favorite sandwich or crackers. More half and half can be added if a creamier soup is desired.
