Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Soup

In this video, Chef John shows you how to make homemade cream of mushroom soup. This comforting, cool weather staple is so simple to make. The key is to unlock the flavors of the mushrooms through a nice long sauté in a little butter. They need to be nice and caramelized. Do this correctly, and you’ll be rewarded with deep rich flavors. See how it’s done. You can use any mushrooms you like, but it’s perfectly delicious with basic white or brown button mushrooms. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Soup. Garnish with a few beautifully sautéed mushrooms and a sprinkle of chopped fresh thyme.

You killed it with the onions. Why does onions have to be in everything? Its like Americans don't know how to cook anything without putting onions in it.

I love this recipe and my daughter loves it. It makes me happy that I can cook cream of mushroom soup for her and it doesn't come out of a can. Thank you Chef John!
