How to Make a Creamy Mushroom Soup

Making mushroom soup can be one of the best options if you’re looking for a hearty, warm meal. It’s great for cold winter days and doesn’t take long to make. 5-Minutes Crafts is showing you how to make this delicious soup with a recipe that will only take about 30 minutes of your time. You don’t need to buy any fancy ingredients, so it’s also a cheap meal to make.


To prepare 4 to 5 servings, you will need the following ingredients:

  • About 1 lb of fresh or canned mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 liter of skimmed or whole milk
  • 2 sprigs of parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step 1

  • Cook the fresh mushrooms in boiling water and use 2 cups of that same water to blend them. Reserve the puree for later.
  • If you’re using canned mushrooms, blend them with a bit of water and set them aside.

Step 2

  • Melt the butter in a pot over low heat and sauté the onion until it looks translucid.
  • Then add the cornstarch and stir constantly until the mixture gets a golden color.

Step 3

  • Pour the mushroom puree into the pot and keep stirring regularly.
  • Add the milk and parsley and let the mix boil for at least 5 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add salt and pepper to taste in the last minutes of cooking.
  • At this point, your mushroom soup should start to thicken and it will have a smooth consistency. If this doesn’t happen, we suggest adding a little bit more cornstarch and to keep stirring with a whisk.

Step 4

  • Enjoy your mushroom soup by adding a little more parsley, pepper, or any spice of your choosing.
