Cream of Mushroom

  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 0.5 oz unsalted butter
  • 2 oz onions
  • 3 tbsp garlic
  • 6 oz brown mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/6 cup white wine
  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • 5 oz dry egg noodles
  • 4 oz frozen peas thawed
  • 6 oz unsalted light tuna
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp brown gravy mix
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley

Crumbly Topping

  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • Add oil to a pot, and melt butter in it over low heat. Stir in onions and garlic, and cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms and stir for another 4 minutes on medium heat. Add flour and stir for another minute. If it’s too dry, add about 1-2 tbsps of the chicken stock to avoid burning.
  • Add wine, stock, thyme, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 11 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add cream and turn off the stove. Stir well.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil and cook egg noodles for 2 minutes. Drain.
  • In a large baking dish, combine cooked noodles, tuna, peas, milk, gravy mix, pepper, and the homemade cream of mushroom soup.
  • Mix bread crumbs and melted butter in a small bowl until lumps form. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the casserole.
  • Put the casserole on a baking tray and bake it in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, you can make the salad and blend the smoothie.
  • Serve.
