Low Carb Creamy Mushroom Soup

Submitted by: GLORIOUSHONOR

Introduction

This is a decadent, creamy, full flavor mushroom soup made with real ingredients. I found this when looking for low carb soups. Not for someone afraid of having fat in their diet. This is wonderful for those days when a bowl of soup is just what you want! This is a decadent, creamy, full flavor mushroom soup made with real ingredients.

Ingredients

    16 oz. mushrooms, sliced
    1 TBS fresh lemon juice
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 TBS butter
    1 TBS olive oil
    2 cups chicken broth
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp white or black pepper
    1/2 cup cream (I use heavy whipping cream)

Directions

1- Preheat oven to 300F.

2- If you did not buy the mushrooms pre-sliced, wipe mushrooms clean with a damp cloth; slice thin. Spread them onto a shallow oven proof baking dish in a double layer. Add the lemon juice, garlic, butter and oil, season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 1 hour or until they are completely cooked and the juice is thick and dark.

3- Set aside a few mushrooms for garnish and put the rest in the blender jar. Add the broth and blend until smooth (or leave a little chunky if you like it that way).
( OR, go ahead and place mushrooms and broth in a heavy saucepan and use a hand blender to blend until desired smoothness. )
In a heavy saucepan, heat the soup for about 5 minutes; add the cream and cook and stir for an additional 5 minutes.

4- Keep a close eye on it and do not allow it to boil!

5- Pour into soup cups or bowls, garnish with reserved mushrooms and serve.
