5 tablespoons butter
1/2 white onion, chopped
1/2 carrot, chopped
cloves from 1 head garlic, peeled and chopped
300 grams button mushrooms, sliced
200 grams shiitake mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons flour

Melt the butter in a pot. Add onion, carrot, and garlic. Sauté until they sweat and brown a little, then add the mushrooms. Let cook for 5 minutes.

Add flour; stir. Add thyme and basil, and water. Season with salt and pepper.

Use a blender to purée the soup, then put it back in the pot. Add cream and Pecorino Romano cheese, then reheat the soup.

Divide among serving bowls. Top each with several croutons, a dash of truffle oil, and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
