HOW DO YOU MAKE MUSHROOM SOUP?

Creamy mushroom soup from scratch has a depth of flavour so different from canned soups (aka slop), thanks to fresh herbs and ingredients.

Just a handful of ingredients needed to make your own version:

  • Mushrooms: Fresh brown or cremini mushrooms are perfect for this recipe. You could also use mini portobello mushrooms, or a combination of your favourite mushroom varieties.
  • Herbs: The best herbs we have found over the years to compliment those incredible flavours is a combination of thyme and parsley. Of course, if you don’t like those, you can also use rosemary, oregano, tarragon, chives or cilantro. Use what you love!
  • Cream: Half and half, heavy cream, light cream or thickened cream all yield similar results, however heavy cream adds richness.
  • Flour: We need flour to create that delicious, creamy texture mushroom soup is loved for. You can leave it out and use cornstarch if you wish. I recommend 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water (slurry). If unsure about quantities for your liking, add the cornstarch slurry in tablespoon increments, stirring in between, until you’ve achieved your ideal texture.

MUSHROOM SOUP RECIPE

What makes our mushroom soup so good? The additional flavours of:

Garlic  — fresh garlic is best, but you can use minced if that’s all you have on hand.

Onions — don’t be put off by the amount of onions I use. I LOVE including two in this soup (or 1/2 cup), as the flavour really shine here. With the amount of mushrooms in this recipe, you’ll find using 2 onions creates the perfect balance of flavour needed for this mushroom soup recipe.

Wine — dry red or white wines are perfect in this and add an incredible taste. If you prefer to leave wine out, you’re more than welcome to do so. There’s no need to replace it with extra broth or stock.

If using a RED, I recommend a Marsala, Sherry, Merlot or Pinot Noir.

For WHITE I love a Pinot Grigio or Sauv Blanc.

Stock

Or Broth! Chicken or beef work well for mushroom soup, just use what you have on hand. Personally, I prefer chicken stock. For a vegetarian option, use a good quality vegetable stock.

Bouillon — I find beef bouillon provides an incredible depth of flavour when compared to chicken bouillon. However, as with the stock options, you can use vegetable stock powder for a delicious vegetarian soup.

Don’t forget the side of garlic bread to mop up all of that soup sitting at the bottom of your bowl!
