Creamy Mushroom Soup Tips

  1. The best way to get a creamy texture is to use cream or milk.
  2. The soup can be thickened using flour or cornstarch slurry. To prepare the cornstarch slurry, whisk together 2 Tbsp cornstarch and 4 Tbsp water until there are no lumps.
  3. The soup is best enjoyed hot, either on its own or with toasted bread.
  4. If you don’t like mushroom chunks and prefer a smooth soup, then you can blend the soup using an immersion blender after it’s cooked.
  5. For the delicious taste, slowly caramelize the mushrooms until they are golden brown and simmer the soup for 20-25 minutes after adding all the ingredients.
