easy Gourmet Mushroom Soup recipe
a one-pot 30-minute (ish) soup recipe full of delicious mushroom flavor!
half & half
salt & pepper to taste
package button mushrooms
8oz 1 package portabella mushrooms (6oz) --this is adaptable to what you can find. A little less or a little more is fine. If you want to use 3 kinds of mushrooms...kudos!
Saute mushrooms and onion in the butter, liquid smoke, and thyme until sweating (about 5 minutes.)
Add potatoes and chicken broth.
Bring to boil. Turn down to simmer.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl mix flour and half and half together.
Bring soup to low boil, beat in the flour and half and half mixture.
Let thicken for a few minutes then remove from heat.
If you have an immersion blender I would recommend giving this soup a good blend. Blending this recipe into a bisque is delicious and brings the mushroom flavor out even more!
