Easy Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

16 Jan

Someone in this apartment does not much care for mushrooms. That being said, he’s been slowly coming around.

So… I decided to push this soup on him.

I loved it. (Too much, too soon?)

It is really easy and fast with a rich, deep flavour.

Not recommended for those who are shy around mushrooms.

Easy Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup 

Serves 4, total time: approx 20 minutes. Adapted from this recipe from food.com

  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 3 cups (approx) thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small white onion, chopped finely
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups stock (vegetable or chicken. I used homemade chicken stock)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Slice mushrooms, and fry with onions, garlic and butter.  Add wine and Dijon and reduce (approx 5 minutes)
  2. Stir in 2 tablespoons flour.
  3. Add stock and stir frequently until well incorporated and slightly thickened.
  4. Stir in cream with remaining 1 tablespoon flour. Add remaining seasonings (salt, pepper, nutmeg, sugar)
  5. Serve hot!

This beats the gloopy sodium bomb that is canned cream of mushroom soup any day. I lightened up the cream quotient by substituting milk, to minimize the January guilt pangs. For a soup that eats like a meal, add a hearty scoop of cooked quinoa.
