The best cream of mushroom soup should not be hard to make and definitely doesn't come from a can. Try my recipe! It is quick, simple and absolutely delicious! 


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Onion
  • 16 oz. Sliced Crimini Mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 5 cups Chicken Broth
  • 3 cups Half and Half


  1. Bring the butter to a sizzle in a soup pot.  Lightly saute' the mushrooms and onions in the butter.  Onions should be slightly translucent and the mushrooms slightly softened.
  2. Stir in the flour. Mix until no white streaks remain.  Add the chicken broth a little at a time, mixing well between additions until all the broth has been added.
  3. Simmer the mushrooms until they are soft and cooked all the way through.  Remove from the heat and blend with an emulsion blender, a regular blender or a food processor until the soup is as chunky or smooth as you want.
  4. Put back over a low heat on the stovetop and stir in the half and half.  Heat until the soup is hot but not boiling.  Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
