About this recipe: This homemade mushroom soup will rival any store-bought variety. It's rich, creamy and full of flavour. Serve with crusty bread for a substantial lunch or dinner. Feel free to experiment with exotic mushrooms, such as shiitake or oyster.
A really quick, easy and tasty soup. Will make it again - 01 Dec 2011
I was looking for a simple cream of mushroom soup recipe ... and this is it! I didn't use thyme, and I did use the stalks (don't like to waste). I pureed the stalks in a food processor to make the soup thicker, and sliced the caps (also in processor). A little extra flour to thicken the soup, too. - 17 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the best cream of mushroom soup recipe I have tried on this website. My husband LOVED it and he hates mushrooms. Every time I make this for dinner guests they rave about it. This dish is wonderful in that is tastes fancy, but it really isn't...it's very cheap and easy to make. Only thing I changed was I used shallots rather than onion because I think shallots add a richness that is just perfect for soups. I like that this recipe does not call for you to puree the soup. I like my cream of mushroom soup with big chunks of mushrooms. - 16 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
