    1. Rinse dried mushrooms well; cover with fresh water in a pot and boil until soft.
    2. In a separate pot, boil fresh mushrooms for 3 minutes, then drain and chop roughly. (If the mushrooms are very fresh, trim and clean them with a cloth first, to remove any dirt.)
    3. Heat beef stock. (It is best to use homemade stock and include vegetables in this soup.)
    4. Dice onion and fry in oil until golden.
    5. In a separate frying pan, fry all the mushrooms (dried and fresh) until fragrant.
    6. Add mushrooms, fried onion and diced potatoes into the stock. Cook until potatoes are soft. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    7. In a small bowl, mix the single cream with 1 tablespoon of plain flour. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of hot soup and stir well. Add into the soup and stir. Cook for a few more minutes.
    8. Serve with freshly chopped parsley.
