Absolutely, here’s a recipe for Cream of Mushroom Soup:

Cream of Mushroom Soup


  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (white or cremini)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Sauté Mushrooms:
    • In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and become golden brown. Remove some mushrooms for garnish if desired.
  2. Cook Aromatics:
    • In the same pot, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent.
  3. Make Roux:
    • Sprinkle the flour over the onions and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, to create a roux.
  4. Add Broth:
    • Gradually pour in the chicken or vegetable broth while stirring continuously to avoid lumps. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. Simmer Soup:
    • Add the sautéed mushrooms back into the pot. Simmer the soup for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly.
  6. Blend or Leave Chunky:
    • At this point, you can either blend the soup using an immersion blender for a smooth consistency or leave it chunky, depending on your preference.
  7. Add Cream and Seasoning:
    • Stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the soup to simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. Garnish and Serve:
    • Ladle the Cream of Mushroom Soup into bowls. Garnish with reserved sautéed mushrooms and chopped fresh parsley if desired.
