Grandma's Mushroom Soup - A Recipe with Fresh Mushrooms

Updated on December 1, 2011

A simple, comforting soup made with fresh mushrooms.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp Onion, Minced

2 oz. Butter

8 oz Mushrooms, Chopped

2 Cups Water

1 Cup Milk

2 Cubes Chicken Bouillon

4 Tbsp Flour

Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion in butter for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in mushrooms and cover with a tight fitting lid. Reduce heat to low and simmer until mushrooms are soft.
  • Add bouillon, flour and half of the water and puree with an immersion blender leaving some small chunks for texture.
  • Add remaining water, milk, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes or until thickened.

Additional Tips

  • Substitute water with chicken broth and omit bouillon cubes.
  • If you don't have an immersion blender, mixture may be transferred to a blender or food processor and returned to saucepan after pureeing.
  • Substitute milk with half and half, cream or evaporated milk for a creamier soup.

      Thanks for sharing this. I'll have to try it. I love mushrooms, and I make a lot of things from scratch, but I've never thought of making mushroom soup. I guess you could substitute cream to make it a little richer.
