Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Recipe by Barbara Figueroa


  • Soup:1 2/3 lbs onion, peeled and quartered with layers separated
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 5 cups mushroom stock
  • 5 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp (scant) thyme, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp (scant) rosemary, finely chopped
  • 5 Tbs Madeira
  • Chive Cream:3 oz silken tofu (by weight)
  • 1/4 cup mushroom stock
  • 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 4 tsp chives, minced
  • Mushrooms:3/4 lb wild or farmed mushrooms (or a combination), weighed after trimming
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shallots, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp thyme, finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp rosemary, finely chopped
  • Other Ingredients (per portion): Additional minced chives for garnish
  • Small Italian parsley sprigs for garnish


  • Toss onion with olive oil in a baking dish. Cover with foil. Roast at 350F (175C), stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes or until starting to soften. Remove foil and continue to roast until golden-brown and very soft.
  • Transfer onions to a saucepan with mushroom stock, balsamic vinegar, thyme, and rosemary. Simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Puree in a blender until smooth and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Stir in Madeira. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To make Chive Cream:Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. (If you've just made the soup, you can use the blender right away without washing it.) Season with salt and pepper.
  • To cook the mushrooms:Saute mushrooms in olive oil with remaining ingredients over moderate heat until nicely browned, seasoning with salt and pepper. Using a nonstick pan will eliminate the need for excessive oil.
  • To serve, reheat soup and mushrooms if necessary. Ladle soup into heated bowls and spoon cream into the middle. Scatter mushrooms over. Sprinkle with chives and parsley sprigs for garnish.
