Mr. Food: Super Creamy Mushroom Soup

Our Super Creamy Mushroom Soup is so rich and creamy, it tastes like a fancy restaurant chef made it. That's because our Test Kitchen team has shared some easy secrets to making the best homemade cream soups ever. Give it a try and we bet you'll agree.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 35 min

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 teaspoon browning and seasoning sauce
  1. In a soup pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, salt, and pepper; saute until tender.

  2. Add flour and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Gradually add broth and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Slowly stir in half-and-half and browning sauce and simmer 5 additional minutes, or until thickened. Serve immediately.
Notes: If you want to reheat leftover soup, just warm it over a low heat, stirring occasionally. And if you'd like to make this lighter, replace the half-and-half with 1% milk and use low-sodium chicken broth.
