Creamy Mushroom Soup

Submitted by: WHITNEYTEACHER

Introduction

Homemade soup is great in the cold winter months. This has been a family favorite at our house for quite some time so I decided to share. Low in fat and calories yet rich in flavor.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3 tbsp. flour
    4 cups water
    4 tsp. chicken bouillon (or 2 chicken bouillon cubes)
    5 oz. button or shiitake mushrooms, sliced
    8 oz. baby bella mushrooms, sliced
    1 large celery stalk
    1 tbsp light butter (optional, included in nutritional info.)
    1 1/2 cups whole milk
    1/2 cup potato pearls (instant mashed potatoes)
    1 tsp Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Tips

I use whole milk but if you want a lower fat version I would recommend trying it with fat free half and half instead. If you can't find Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning at your local grocery store it's available on Amazon.com.


Directions

Place 3 cups cold water and flour in a blender and blend until smooth, pour into large pot and set heat to medium. Add the sliced mushrooms.

Chop celery and add to remaining 1 cup of water, place in blender and blend. Add celery and water to the pot and bring the mixture to a boil stirring occasionally. Add bouillon when water is hot. Cover and simmer until mushrooms are soft, about 20 minutes.

Remove most of the cooked mushrooms and broth and blend until smooth (leaving some in gives the soup more texture), return blended mushrooms to the pot. Add whole milk, light butter and potato pearls, stir. Add seasonings, stir and heat for an additional 5 minutes.

Serving Size: Makes 6 Servings, approx. 1 1/4 cups each

  • I made this with ff half and half and it was delicious. had a nice creamy texture. Also I couldn't find the all purpose Greek seasoning, but was able to find a recipe on line to mix up my own and it gave the soup great flavor. - 2/28/13
