I’m in love with this soup! It’s so rich and hearty and comforting and delicious 🙂 And I’m not much of a soup eater but this one is simply gorgeous! With a dollop of sour cream and some croutons… Mmmmmmm!
CREAMY MUSHROOM SOUP
(adapted from BBC GoodFood)
25g dried porcini (ceps)
1 garlic clove, sliced
400g portobello mushrooms, chopped
850ml vegetable stock
Boil some water and pour over the dried porcini just to cover. Set aside.
Heat the butter in a saucepan, then gently sizzle the garlic until softened and starting to brown.
Drain the porcini (reserving the water they were soaked in), then add to the garlic with the portobello mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes until they go limp.
Pour over the stock and the reserved water, bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
Stir in cream, then simmer for a few minutes more. Blitz the soup with a hand blender or liquidiser.
I only enjoy mushrooms in soup form, so this looks super appetising 😀

Thanks Uru! I know a couple of people who find the texture kind of weird and for them I think soup is the way to go 🙂
Looks wonderfully good and delicious !
Thank you so much!
Love creamy soups and mushrooms as well! I would add some fried onions or leeks may be..
Oh, do add them if you like! I don’t like onions or anything that remotely resembles them in flavour, such as leeks or spring onions, so I never use them in my recipes 😉
Thank you, Lori!
Oh I should really make mushrooms soup more often. I love love love it, and this looks so yummy! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
Thank you! I love mushroom soup but it was the first time I made it at home. I’ll definitely be making it more often 🙂
Looks like the perfect soup to transition into cooler weather! Especially before I’m ready for the heartier, stew varieties. It sounds delicious!
Thanks, Nancy! It’s perfect for chilly night indeed 🙂
Com o friozinho que tem feito cai muito bem. Sim, os croutons dão a crocância necessária.
