cream of mushroom soup recipe with step by step photos. beginning the new year with a mushroom soup recipe. soups make rare appearances on my blog. but when they do, i make sure they are equally good. so when you guys make them at home, you are able to enjoy them as much as we do.

i generally don’t make creamy soups from any veggie. most of the times i end up making our family favorites  – tomato soup and sweet corn soup. for the first time i made this cream of mushroom soup. it was a hit with us and also with our neighbors.

i checked a lot of recipes online and could not make up my mind. there are many many ways this recipe is made. since i am kind of purist when it comes to food, i searched on wikipedia. i have followed the basic way the cream of mushroom is made using my own proportions, with just a slight alteration in the technique. instead of adding the cooked mushrooms to the soup later, i have sauted the mushrooms first and then made the whole soup in one pot.

so this one pot soup recipe is an easy and quick way of making cream of mushroom soup. the result was a creamy smooth soup comforting in the winters. i paired the soup with peas pulao and a vegetable salad.

to make the roux (flour and butter cooked together), i have used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour (maida). both of them help in thickening in the soup and you can use the one which you prefer. chicken stock is not used in this recipe. you can use veg stock instead of water if you have ready veg stock at home.

  1. Tried this recipe today and it turned out absolutely delicious! Can’t express how much your blog is inspiring amateur cooks such as I. Many thanks for the fantastic work. Exploring more of your recipes. 🙂

  2. Hi.. Is there any alternative fr milk nd cream.. (i am lactose intolerant.) I knw its a stupid question.. Bt thought maybe there is.. As I m so very much fond of Soups nd really wanna try this one.

    • sonal, you can use almond milk. just heat it. do not boil it. almond milk is a good alternative for milk. even coconut milk can be used, but with coconut milk, the taste of coconut will be there. for cream, in the market you do get lactose free cream, which i think is made from soy, but not sure how will it taste. coconut cream can be used, but as i mentioned above, coconut taste will be there.

      if using almond milk the first add water and bring to a simmer. then towards the end add almond milk and just warm or lightly heat the soup. same you can do if using coconut milk. cream can be skipped.
