Cream of Mushroom Soup


The sniffles can be miserable. And nothing is more comforting than a bowl of soup. You have probably heard about how chicken soup is good for a cold? Well, I found something better-Cream of mushroom soup!

AR always request this when he is ill. Perhaps it is the loads of mushrooms that increases his immunity but he claims that it makes him feel better. For me, I just enjoy the chunkyness of the soup. I have refined this recipe over the years but it remained simple.

Cream of Mushroom soup
500 grams of field mushrooms
1/2 cup to 1 cup of light cream
2-3 tsp of chopped pasley
1-2 tsp of chopped thyme
about 3 cups of vegetable stock
a knob of butter
1 tablespoon of garlic

1) Melt a knob of butter in a saucepan. Saute garlic till slightly brown and add mushrooms. Cook till slightly soft and add herbs.

2) Add stock and simmer. That will take around 10-15 minutes. Lower the heat and add cream. Note-add 1/2 a cup first and taste to see if it is the consistency you desire.

3) Simmer till the soup slightly thickens. Add seasoning.

4) Serve with garlic bread.

  1. I’m not big on soups, but mushroom is one of the few that I enjoy. Some crusty garlic bread, and I’m set. Maybe I can feign illness 🙂

  2. I have to say.. This particular Mushroom soup is my all-time favourite. It contains just the right amount of mushrooms, right amount of cream, and is flavoursome. Nothing beats this on a cool day (actually, even on a hot day, breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, midnight snack, or any other time). Most delicious!!
