Creamy Mushroom Soup

Perfection! That is exactly what this Creamy Mushroom Soup is.

I love mushroom soup. It is one of my favorites. The first time I tried it I was hooked.

Some people may be skeptical by the color, but let me tell you that this soup is simply delicious. There is nothing better than a hearty homemade soup.

So… what do you need to make this Creamy Mushroom Soup?

  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Carrots
  • Garlic
  • Thyme
  • All-purpose flour
  • Butter
  • Chicken Stock
  • Milk
  • Adobo seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

A cream soup is thickened with a roux. A roux is basically fat and flour cooked together. There is white roux, blonde roux, and brown roux. For this recipe, in particular, I added the all-purpose flour after cooking the veggies.

Method at a Glance:

  1. Cook all the veggies and aromatics.
  2. Add the all-purpose flour
  3. Add the chicken stock, and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the milk and corn puree.
  5. Let it simmer for about 40 minutes.

Trial and error:

One thing I have learned throughout time and trial and error is to be patient, do not over season the soup, it takes about 30 to 45 minutes for a soup to develop flavor. Adjust the seasoning accordingly, wait and let the magic happen.

Now if you want me to be a 100% honest,  I think the corn puree is the star of the show (It is the “secret” ingredient in this soup). The sweet corn puree gives a delicious flavor to it.
