Directions

Heat the margarine in a soup pot and add the onions. Saute over medium heat until the onion is golden and very soft

Add the beans and vegetable broth to the pot and puree with a stick blender OR, remove mixture to a food processor and puree.

Saute the mushrooms in a skillet until soft. Add half to the soup and puree again. Add remaining mushrooms to the soup. If it's too thick, thin it with a little water. Season with salt and pepper and a big splash of sherry -- yum!

    Quick and easy! I used EVOO instead of butter. I puree'd most of my mushrooms since I was trying to make something I could drink out of a travel mug on the go. I added a little garlic during cooking as well. I'll definitely make this again! - 12/28/09

    I think I may have added garlic as well -- I'm a garlic fiend! The cook book I got this from is all about 5-ingredient dishes, which is probably why the onion is the only aromatic.

  • This is excellent soup! I love mushrooms, I used baby portabellas, from Costco, and some homemade chicken stock from the freezer.
    It had so much flavor, can't believe it was low cal! - 3/14/12

  • Awesome! I forgot about good old cannellini beans. I tried to make a mushroom soup last night but used 1% milk.... Not so creamy. Next time I will use this recipe, thank you!! - 10/18/10

  • I was making this as a vegan dish. So I used olive oil instead of butter and vegetable broth instead of beef broth. Turned out alright. definitely am going to try to work with it .I don't think that I pureed it enough because it was not creamy. - 2/7/10
