mushroom soup recipe

posting a soup recipe after a long time. this mushroom soup recipe is simple, easy and taste too good. you would love sipping this soup in a cold weather as well as in monsoons. accompany the soup with a crusty bread or some noodles or rice.

this is a clear soup recipe. i have not used any veg stock in the recipe and cooked the mushrooms in water. if you have veg stock, you can use it. you can also check this one pot quick cream of mushroom soup and clear soup recipe.

any variety of mushrooms can be used. i have used white button mushrooms which i easily get here. celery is also added in the soup which gives a really good flavor. if you do not have celery, you can skip it. without celery, some flavor profile will be missing. so celery is optional but highly recommended.

  1. I made it and it was super yum.
    My doubt is When should we use normal vinegar and when should we use apple cidar vinegar?

  2. Recipe is good,but if you have any alternative to soy sauce,corn flour ( in some soups) soy based product or gluten product that will be really helpful.

    • kirti, try using gluten free soy sauce. its available even in india in super stores. also instead of corn starch, you can use rice flour or tapioca flour as a thickener.

  3. Your recipes are awesome…please post more soup recipe especially clear soups..which doesn’t have cornflour…..tried this soup today….everyone wants now daily this soup….
    Thank you
    Take care

    • thats some work for you ankita to prepare the soup everyday 🙂

      i will try to add some more soup recipes which can be made without any thickening agent.

  4. Tried this soup today. Everybody loved it. Especially my mother in law. Thanks alot 🙂

  5. Made this today, a great light soup, normally mushroom soups have a lot of cream in them or roux, and what do you know after a hot spell it rained here. Just the right weather for soup:)

    • thanks anu for the review. yes mostly mushroom soups have a lot of cream or roux. but these heavy soups also taste good once in a while. for everyday food light and clear soups are a good bet. of course monsoons and winters are best times to have soups 🙂
