Wine Merchant Soup

Light but filling. Excellent served with a bean salad and good crusty bread. The broth should have a shiny appearance from the cornstarch. Larchwood Inn, Wakefield, Rhode Island

1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
