Recipe Cream of Mushroom Soup

lighter cream of mushroom soup. Super fast and delicious one of my go to weekday dinners at Rae Gun Ramblings

Until a few years ago I was a mushroom hater. But after one fantastic mushroom risotto I can’t get enough. We love this quick and easy recipe for cream of mushroom soup. It’s pretty light since the cream is really minimal but it’s super tasty and greatfor a weeknight meal.

Recipe Cream of Mushroom Soup


  • 1 8 oz pack of mushrooms (I usually use whole mushrooms but they were all out this time)
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 potato peeled and diced
  • 2 TBS butter
  • 1 TBS chicken granuels
  • 1/4 C heavy Cream

What to Do

  1. Chop mushrooms, onion and potato
  2. Saute with the butter in pot big enough for the whole recipe.
  3. Add 4 C hot water bring to a boil and add chicken granuels
  4. Blend with immersion blender (or you could use a regular blender)
  5. Add another 4 C water
  6. Add cream and stir
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper

So easy right? It goes perfectly with Cheesey Jalapeno Rolls. I know it’s really basic but it’s good old comfort food perfect for when you don’t know what you feel like.

  6. Hi Marissa-

    I love mushrooms, but besides using them in casseroles or stir fry, I don’t really use them so much. Mainly because I don’t know what else do do with them. This soup looks really, really good. I bet it’s super tasty, and it looks super simple to make.

    Thank you so much for linking up to my Your Cozy Home Party. My party is rather new, so I appreciate seeing new “faces”. I didn’t see a link back to my blog, so please remember to include that. Thanks!
