Friends were requesting cream of mushroom, so bought me a big brown bag-ful of them and this is what I came up with - it's very popular! Great with fresh bread and butter...

Fantastic, flavorful soup!!! Wasn't sure if the herbs called for were dried or fresh so I used what I had, fresh. Also I sauted the onions and mushrooms in butter first then added the olive oil later since the oil has a tendency to burn. Because of my picky family I pureed the mixture just before I added the cream. Thanks for the awesome recipe Cadillacgirl

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a large soup pot and saute the mushrooms and onions until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms cooked down a little, then add the thyme, rosemary, and garlic.
  2. Saute another few minutes until the mushrooms are cooked down and the onions are starting to carmelize.
  3. Add butter to melt and then whisk in the flour, allowing the flour to cook out for a minute or two. Then slowly whisk in the chicken broth until it is all incorporated, then add the cream, and remaining ingredients.
  4. Bring to a simmer, allowing it to thicken and then serve!
