One of the (many) things we love about mushroom soup is its simplicity, distinctive mushroom flavour and how it’s everyone’s favourite appetizer. Today, we have CY Phang to walk us through a easy, simple mushroom soup recipe that’s fit to be on a restaurant menu! That’s right – no thin, watery mushroom soups here.

In less than half an hour, you’ll be able to enjoy a creamy, chunky mushroom soup – best enjoyed with a slice of garlic bread. A quick note on the mushrooms – you can use a variety of mushrooms, such as grey or white oyster, shiitake, white button or Swiss brown. We love using grey oyster mushrooms – its mild taste and tender texture lends itself well to a nice mushroom soup.

INGREDIENTS

  • 200 g fresh mushrooms, cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 litre chicken stock or vegetable stock or water
  • 100 – 150 ml of cooking cream or whipping cream
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped chives

METHOD

1. Saute diced onion in butter on medium heat for about 2 minutes until slightly browned and aromatic.
2. Add in mushroom and stir briefly, pour in chicken or vegetable stock or water, bring to boil and continue to simmer on low heat for about 10 – 15 minutes until mushrooms turn soft, turn off heat.
3. Use a hand blender (we use Kenwood Triblade Hand Blender) to blend until smooth. If you don’t have a hand blender, pour into a normal blender with a heat proof jar and blend until smooth and creamy.

4. Pour in cooking/whipping cream (we use Lescure whipping cream for its high fat content and quality), turn on heat, seasoned with salt & black pepper, and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes. Ladle out into soup bowls, sprinkle with chopped chives and serve immediately with garlic bread or toasts or croutons.

Note: To thicken soup, mix 1 teaspoon of plain flour with 3 tablespoons of water and stir into the soup with the cream. This is optional and a personal preference.

Make Perfect French Fries Every Time

Everybody loves french fries. They are the perfect combination of grease, salt, comforting carbs and they can be eaten alone or with your favourite meat dish.
