Paarkvale La Button salad with tarragon dressing

750 grams
Parkvale Gourmet Brown Mushrooms, chopped
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup flour
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup salad oil
1.5 litres homemade chicken stock (or from a packet)
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

A robust mushroom soup is something you should indulge in anytime, not just during the winter months. Thanks to the availability of Parkvale Gourmet Brown Mushrooms all year round and this delicious, easy to prepare recipe, you can enjoy this wonderful soup whenever you fancy.

Turn the oven to 200 deg Celsius. Place the mushrooms and garlic in a roasting pan, and sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper. Trickle with oil. Roast for 30 minutes until the mushrooms are dry and crusty and the flour is starting to brown. During the roasting, use a spatula to turn the mixture over a couple of times.

Transfer to a saucepan. Pour some of the stock into the roasting pan and put over heat to dissolve the brownings. Add this to the saucepan with the remaining stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer gently for thirty minutes until the soup is lightly thickened and dark brown. Taste for seasoning and add the parsley just before serving.
