This easy cream of mushroom soup is a combination of fresh sliced mushrooms, bouillon, and seasonings. The mushrooms are simmered in the broth for 20 minutes, and then a roux is added along with milk or cream.
For extra mushroom flavor, soak some dried mushrooms in boiling water and add them along with the fresh mushrooms.
Take a look at the reader comments for some additional suggestions.
- In a large saucepan, combine mushrooms, boiling water, chicken bouillon, and onion. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Melt butter in another saucepan; blend in flour. Gradually add milk; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.
- Add sauce to the mushroom mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- If desired, blend some or all of the soup. See: How to Puree Soup in a Blender
