For making a Mushroom Soup with Cream Blue Cheese, first, heat one tablespoon of olive oil In a saucepan, add the finely chopped onion, and celery stalk, cook for 5 minutes until soft, translucent, and golden. Stir in the minced garlic, cook until fragrant. Stir occasionally.
Chop the mushrooms roughly, slice the small carrot, add them to the pan, and cook for another five minutes. Stir the vegetable mixture occasionally, until mushrooms are shrunken and nearly covered in liquid. It takes about 15-20 minutes. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the cooked mushrooms for serving.
Now add the vegetable stock, broth, or milk, let them boil, and cook together until flavors have melded. Give it about 20 minutes.
When the Mushroom Soup seems almost thick, transfer it into a blender, and process until your desired consistency is met. Return the soup to the pot over low heat.
Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and season to taste with some salt and ground pepper.
Heat the broiler or grill. Then brush the Baguette slices with butter, and top them with Cream Blue Cheese crumbles. Place the slices on a baking sheet. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and the bread is toasted and crispy for about 2-3 minutes.
Serve the delicious soup in an appealing bowl, top it with the reserved fried mushrooms, and sprinkle some sprigs of thyme and black pepper. You can float the cheese toasts in the bowl or side with it.
