This cream of mushroom soup recipe is so much better than the canned, condensed version. It's worth the effort to make it from scratch.


1 pound fresh mushrooms; sliced
0.25 cup Butter
4 tablespoons Flour
3 13-oz cans chicken broth
0.25 cup fresh snipped parsley
dry sherry; or use more chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream; warmed

Original recipe makes 4



Wash mushrooms and chop coarsely.Heat the butter in a 3 quart saucepan. Saute the mushrooms about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over to coat. Add the broth gradually, stirring constantly. Add the parsley and sherry. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream. (You may whirl in a blender at this point for a smoother texture, Some prefer just to leave as is).


This is great when your feeling a bit "down" and want some warm "comfort food".

Truly better than canned and easily adaptable to gluten-free.

Very good tasty recipe. I substituted the cream with milk to make the soup lower in calories.

I cooked the flour well with the mushrooms, helps with the consistency, I also added sweet onion with the mushroom sauté. Pepper, & small amount of worcestershire sauce really brings a nice flavor.

How much sherry is everyone using? I used 1/4 cup... Seemed about right. Tastes AWESOME! I absolutely love this soup!

Do not wash the mushrooms, clean with a damp sponge or paper towel... Washing will add extra water to your soup.

I screwed up and forgot to buy chicken broth, so I used beef broth instead, recipe still turned out delicious. Can't wait to try again the correct way!

Amazing taste, the whole family loved it and we've made it multiple times since. Good and easy but tastes like you've been cooking it for hours.
