1 Tbsp Olive oil
1/2 pound Mushrooms (I use crimini)
2 cloves of garlic (according to taste)
1 slice smoked bacon
2 Tbsp Parsley (fresh if possible)
1 Thick slice of bread (brown preferably, cut into small pieces)
1.5 pint Chicken stock
A pinch of freshly grated Nutmeg
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 pint Cream or Milk
Wash the mushrooms (do not peel or remove the stalks), cut them in small pieces.
Finely chop the shallot.
In a large pan pour the olive oil on medium heat and soften the shallot, add the mushroom pieces and let them soften for a few minutes.
Add the garlic finely cut (or crushed), the slice of bacon thinly sliced and 1 Tbsp of parsley.
Let it all stew for a few minutes then add the slice of bread and chicken stock and simmer for a further 15 mn or more. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste.
Liquidise then add the cream or milk, re-heat and serve with 1 Tbsp of fresh parsley.
