Creamy Mushroom Soup served

Creamy Mushroom Soup is a very simple soup recipe with lots of fresh mushrooms, onions, potatoes, celery, garlic, and herbs. You can skip potatoes if you like, but I like to add them to my soups since it makes soups heartier and more filling.

I have been looking for these Wild Golden Chanterelle Mushrooms for a long time and I think that’s the first time that I found them at our Costco store. These mushrooms make this Mushroom soup even tastier

Chanterelle Mushroom

Chanterelle mushrooms are attractive fungi with trumpet-like cups and wavy, wrinkled ridges and best known for being rich in vitamin D. Vitamin D helps to support your bones and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent for your body. 

If you can’t find these mushrooms locally, use dry Chanterelle mushrooms and soak them overnight. Or use the best fresh mushrooms you can find at the stores.

You can use any wine for this recipe: White, Marsala, Sherry, Merlot, Pinot Noir or your favorite.

  • Bring to boil then reduce to simmer. Cook until potatoes are soft.

Broth added to soup

  • Whisk in sour cream and adjust flavors by adding salt, pepper, and more dry thyme. 
  • Stir in vinegar, if desired.
  • Add fresh herbs: dill or parsley and serve!

Sour Cream added to soup

(Note: The sour cream must be at room temperature before you add it to the soup. If refrigerated, take it out of the fridge at least an hour before you cook.)

If you prefer smoother consistency soups just transfer soup to a blender in small batches and puree on high speed until smooth and thick. 

My family likes chunkier consistency soups. Personal preference here.
