Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4


  • 8 tablespoons butter 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme finely chopped
  • 1 cup diced potatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 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.
  • Serve.


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!
