  • Summary

    Closely identified with French cuisine, chestnut soups are low in fat. For a velvety smooth texture, pass soup through a fine strainer after the mixture has been processed and before adding the cream.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound fresh chestnuts
    • 6 ounces cremini mushrooms
    • 2 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, halved
    • 8 sprigs fresh thyme, plus leaves for garnish
    • 6 cups homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
    • 2 cups water
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
