Add four sprigs of fresh thyme to the top then place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through, until golden brown and tender. Add half of the minced garlic and stir to coat evenly, continue roasting for another five minutes. Remove from the oven and discard the thyme sprigs; set aside.

  1. The soup looks delicious and easy to make – I like the look with the large mushroom pieces. I think the only mushroom soup I’ve ever had at home came from a can.
