The best homemade mushroom soup


mushroom soupI heart soups, especially the homemade ones, where you can indulge in a flavorful one without feeling any guilt. This soup is so rich in flavors and low in calories. It is super easy to make plus it takes less than 30 minutes to be ready.

  • 500g mushroom sliced
  • 1 medium onion finely diced
  • 50g butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 4 1/2 cup vegetable broth (less fat, less salt)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a casserole and cook the onions until fragrant and tender, about 2-3 minutes. Add the mushroom and cook about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over while still cooking for another 2 minutes. Pour the broth and mix. When u see the first bubble forming, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Puree in a blender and serve. You can keep aside some mushroom slices if you like chunks in your soup.

You can still enjoy a low calorie soup if you choose low fat cream. Personally i prefer it without cream, i like to enjoy the exclusive taste of mushroom.

IMG_4942It’s one of those delicious meals for busy moms or even bachelors who wants their food to be served in less than 30 mns. Incredibly flexible dish, can be served with grilled or sauteed vegetables, with mashed potatoes or even pasta.

To create the easiest and quickest mushroom gravy you need:

  • 4 cups of water
  • one sachet of mushroom soup (50g)
  • 2 cubes chicken stock (20g)
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup sliced mushroom
  • 1 tbsp whiskey

Choose your favorite brand of mushroom soup and prepare the creamiest and most tasty gravy for your quick meal. Combine water, mushroom soup, chicken stock and flour in a casserole, mix well and bring to boil. Keep whisking all the time to get the consistency you need, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the mushroom slices and boil for two more minutes. Take off the heat and add the whiskey. It will give it the twist you will enjoy. Eh voila the gravy is ready.

Serve it along with what you fancy to eat, personally i like mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables in salt and butter.
