Cream of Mushroom Soup
It’s so simple to make this Cream of Soup Recipe; we truly believe anyone can make it at home, whether you’re a beginner cook or more advanced. Growing up, we usually ate wild mushroom soup from mushrooms foraged by my grandpa or dad in the nearby forests. Cream of Soup wasn’t regularly on the menu, if at all. But in Jernej’s household growing up, they ate Creamy mushroom soup more often, which also inspired this recipe. We connected with Spar Slovenija for this recipe. Spar is our go-to store, and we love using its products. We used dried ground (button) mushrooms for this recipe which adds a lovely flavor and intensity.

  • cook mushrooms and rice

    Place a pot over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of butter, a tablespoon of olive oil, and sliced mushrooms. Saute for 5 minutes, then transfer the mushrooms onto a plate. Add another tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of olive oil into the same pot along with diced onion and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes for the veggies to soften.

  • add the rest of the ingredients

    Add ground dried mushrooms, flour, marjoram, oregano, and thyme to the pot. Cook for 5 minutes, then pour in half of the vegetable broth. Using a whisk, stir to combine to get a smooth, thick soup, then add the rest of the vegetable broth and continue to simmer for 10 minutes.

  • blend

    Pour the soup into a blender or use an immersion blender to mix the soup into a smooth mixture. Add the heavy cream, sauteed mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are hot again.

  • serve

    Divide the soup between four bowls and serve warm with diced parsley.
