Mushroom Soup Without Cream

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"A delicious broth-based soup that can be modified to your taste! It's close to a Mushroom Soup that I had at a great deli in Florida--I've been trying to duplicate it ever since! I finally found a basic recipe that I was able to modify and this is the result. Great with salad or a sandwich. I hope that you enjoy it! Recommended mushrooms: Shitake, Baby Portobellos & White/Button Mushrooms."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt the butter in a stock pot over medium heat. Add carrots, onions, leeks, and celery. Cook and stir until tender, but not browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in thyme and mushrooms, and continue cooking until mushrooms are soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour chicken stock into the pot, and season with salt and pepper. Cover, and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Ladle into bowls, and serve with green onions sprinkled on the top.

Footnotes

  • Notes
  • If you do not use leeks, increase the amounts of the other vegetables or add your favorites. Dried thyme may be used in place of the fresh. Add your favorite herbs with or in place of the thyme.
  • For a smoother texture, you may puree the soup after it has simmered the final 30 minutes, I prefer to serve it as is.
  • Prepare some wild rice according to package directions, and add to soup during the final 10 minutes of cooking or after soup has been pureed.
