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