How to Make Cream of Mushroom Soup

This mushroom soup is ready for you in about 35 minutes, most of that time is just the soup simmering on the stove.

You’ll want to use a large soup pot for this recipe.  I love these AmazonBasics soup pots – I use them for EVERYTHING!  Melt your butter over medium high heat.  Now add in your 6 cups of fresh mushrooms that are chopped up, chopped onions and minced garlic.  Keep stirring until the onions are tender and translucent. This takes about 10 minutes.

Add chicken broth, heavy cream, cream cheese, thyme, salt and pepper.  You can use boxed chicken broth or you can use bouillon cubes and water.  I use bouillon because it saves me money. Stir so it’s all combined.

Bring the soup to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Now this is important.  Remove half of the soup from the pot and place in a bowl.  Careful, the soup is hot!  With the soup remaining in the pot, use a immersion blender to blend until smooth.   Now add the soup that’s in the bowl back into the pot.  Simmer for 10 more minutes.

Why do we use a immersion blender?  We want the soup to be creamy and really have a mushroom taste to it.   By using the immersion blender, we’re helping the soup achieve a high mushroom flavor and thicken up into a creamy soup.  If you don’t have a immersion blender, you can use a blender.  But again, please be careful – it’s hot! 

Now the best part – time to serve in bowls! It’s Mushroom Soup Time! Totally optional, but I like a little dash of paprika on top!

Yes, just put the leftover cream of mushroom soup in a freezer safe bag.  When ready to use, defrost overnight or defrost in microwave.  Then use mushroom soup as you normally would.
