Easy Homemade Mushroom Soup – Today is homemade soup day and I’m getting ready to make homemade mushroom soup.
Mushroom soup in all its variations takes the number one spot on our list of easy homemade soups.
For me, it goes way back to the days when my great-grandfather and I would hike through the Forêt de St.Gobain during Summer and Fall for the very purpose of filling a basket full of mushrooms to make soup – pointing out the good ones and, with his walking stick, maintaining a distance from the bad ones.
For those in our household who want soup when the cook is not available there are plenty of mushroom soups to pick from on the grocery store shelves.
Pop the can open and pour the contents into a saucepan. Voilà! From dried, to fresh, to canned…
In a hurry? ===> Pick from a great selection of prepared mushroom soups
However, nothing tastes quite like freshly sautéed mushrooms and the aroma of making soup on a chilly Fall day.
How often do you make soup from scratch? Easy Homemade Mushroom Soup is one one of my favorite soups to prepare using fresh ingredients.
I’m all for making all meals from scratch but when you’re short on time, I resort to semi-homemade methods. This includes soup.
It all started with doctoring up a can of Campbell’s® mushroom soup. Why? Not enough mushrooms and a rather bland flavor.
I start by sautéeing a pound of sliced mushroom medley although you can use all white button or all baby bellas.
Here is another version of our easy homemade mushroom soup:
Sauté the same amount of mushrooms but add a cup of thinly sliced carrots.
Increase the broth to 8 cups, season to taste and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Once the carrots are tender, add about 1/3 of a bag of wide egg noodles. Cook until the noodles are done. Omit the cornstarch.
Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and slivers of green onions.
Your homemade soup is ready to serve!
