Rich and Creamy Mushroom Soup

Rich and Creamy Mushroom Soup

There is nothing better than a yummy, rich and creamy mushroom soup!

This was my first ever attempt at making soup and I decided to start with mushroom because it is my absolute favourite. It turned out beautifully. My husband even enjoyed it and he doesn’t like soup!

I made 2 batches up and froze some for future meals.


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 kg mushrooms
  • pinch salt
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons flour
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 pinch salt & freshly ground black pepper


  • Melt butter in large pot over medium heat. Add mushrooms and pinch of salt and cook on low heat for about 15 minutes.
  • Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes until onions are soft.
  • Stir in flour and cook, stirring often for about 2 minutes.
  • Tie thyme together with kitchen string and add to pot (I didn’t have anything to tie it with so I just pulled all the leaves off the sprigs of thyme and chucked it in), add garlic cloves, chicken stock and water. Simmer for about 1 hour.
  • Remove thyme and blend. The recipe I found said to blend until smooth, I used one of those braun hand blenders and left some chunky bits which I find much nicer!
  • Add salt, pepper and cream

A nice touch is to keep some of the fried mushrooms aside and garnish the soup with a few mushrooms and some more thyme.

  3. I made your famous Rich & Creamy Mushroom soup last night. With a freshly home made bread. My family really enjoyed it, even my picky little eater. Thanks again for sharing Lynne 🙂

    • So glad you and family enjoyed it! It was a winner here too 🙂 Fresh home made bread? Please share that with me, I would love to make home made bread… if I can succeed in making that too anyone can.

  4. This recipe is too easy to flop :-).
    Home made bread
    – 3 cups of flour
    – 2 cups of lukewarm water
    – 1 teaspoon salt
    – 1 packet of dry yeast (I use the purple packet)
    – 5 tablespoons of olive oil

    Mix every thing together, if the dough is very sticky you may add more flour. The mixture must be smooth. Leave the dough mixture to rise for two hours in the microwave. Preheat your oven to 150 degrees. Put the mixture into a lightly buttered pan. Brush your bread with a little melted butter on top before baking and put it to bake at 180 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
    Enjoy 🙂
