Creamy Chanterelle Mushroom Soup

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a lovely French version of cream of mushroom soup using chanterelles, which can be a bit pricey, so if you find wild ones while foraging, use them with this recipe! Serve with croutons or crostini."

  1. Rinse mushrooms and pat dry. Slice in half. Rinse off any bugs or dirt and chop.
  2. Melt butter in a deep, heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir mushroom pieces into the shallots and toss in a generous pinch of salt to help draw out their juices. Add pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Continue to cook until mushroom pieces shrink in size and brown slightly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour chicken stock into the pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, 10 to 20 minutes.
  4. Ladle soup into a high-powered blender. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; blend on high until pureed, 1 to 2 minutes. Add half-and-half and blend for 1 minute more. Return blended soup to the pot. Heat until warmed through, 5 to 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • This recipe will actually work with any mushroom!
  • Swap the half-and-half with coconut cream and you'll have a vegan version.
