  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1 Large, chopped

Directions

Chop half the mushrooms; thinly slice the remaining mushrooms and set aside.
Melt butter in a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium-high heat; add chopped mushrooms, onion, and thyme.
Stir often until the vegetables are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
Mix flour with vegetables.
Pour into a blender or food processor; whirl, adding as much broth as needed to smoothly puree the mixture.

Bring soup to a boil on high heat, stirring frequently.
Reduce heat to low and simmer to blend flavors, about 10 minutes.
Add sherry, salt, and pepper to taste.
