Geneva's Ultimate Hungarian Mushroom Soup

4.7
(81)

A warm, filling soup that is a wonderful cool weather lunch or dinner and is especially great with a side of multi-grain bread! I load up on thickly cut mushrooms and use traditional Hungarian Sweet Paprika. Um! Definitely use the tomato and pepper. It gives it a totally different flavor. You may serve immediately or refrigerate and reheat. I find that the soup just as good if not better the next day. Use a ripe tomato. Also, if you can't find a Hungarian wax pepper, try another mild chile pepper and just use a smaller piece.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 cups chopped onions

  • 1 ½ pounds fresh mushrooms, thickly sliced

  • 4 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh dill

  • 1 tablespoon Hungarian sweet paprika

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 cup skim milk

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ ripe tomato

  • ½ Hungarian wax pepper

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup light sour cream

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the onions in the butter until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes more. Stir the dill, paprika, soy sauce, and chicken broth into the mushroom mixture; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.

  2. Whisk the milk and flour together in a small bowl. Stir the mixture into the soup. Add the tomato and Hungarian wax pepper. Return cover to the pot and simmer another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Mix the sour cream into the soup and continue cooking and stirring until the soup has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes more. Remove the Hungarian wax pepper and tomato and discard before serving the soup.
