Cream of Mushroom Soup

By: Gigi Howe

I love soup and have made quite a few different recipes over time.  Some are slightly more complicated to make than others but this recipe that I am sharing today, is pretty simple.  You put it through the blender so its becomes a nice thick soup.   I’ve made it for company and everyone has always liked it.

The recipe calls for chicken broth so don’t forget to print out your coupon for Swanson broth!  And of course, if you prefer to make this a vegetarian soup, use vegetable broth instead of the chicken.

Cream of Mushroom Soup


–  2 cups chicken broth
– 1/2 chopped onion
– 1 package of mushrooms – sliced
– 2 tablespoons butter
– 2 tablespoons flour
– 1 cup milk
– 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
– salt and pepper to taste


1. In a saucepan combine broth, onion and mushrooms.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover and let simmer for 5 mins.

2. Let cool slightly and then put mixture in blender or food processor (you will probably have to do it in 2 or 3 batches).  Blend until smooth and pour into a bowl.

3.  In the same saucepan melt the butter and blend in flour and add milk.  Cook and stir until thickened.  Stir in the blended mushroom mixture.  Cook until heated through and serve.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    “She recently move to Ohio..” Need to update bio as that line has been static for months.

    • You must be young because when you are older and you do something within the last 5 years (in this case it’s been only 1 year) it’s “recent” especially when you lived some place else for over 45 years. 😉

        That is really so funny.. I was just thinking about this last week when I had to bring my cat to the vet here in Ohio. Its a new vet for me and I told them that I recently moved here from NJ. Then I thought .. well its been 8 months now that I left NJ, it still feels very recent. 😉 And I still miss ShopRite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
