Add the butter to a medium pot over medium high heat. Allow it to melt down. Add in the onion, garlic, and mushrooms. Stir and saute until the mushrooms begin to sweat and the garlic is fragrant.
Put the flour in. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes until the flour is cooked and the mushrooms are coated.
Pour the chicken stock and cream in followed by the salt, pepper, and thyme. Stir until well combined and it begins to simmer.
Allow to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until it begins to thicken.
Pour into a bowl, garnish with parsley, and enjoy your cream of mushroom soup.

I let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes which is perfect. If you want it more soupy, you can add a bit of milk or water.
Some recipes blend the soup after cooking. I never do this, but you can if you wish.
