Soups are a family favorite. I prepare a variety of soups, including Tomato Soup and Sweet Corn Soup, which are two of our family favorites. I usually cook light and transparent soups, but I also make thick and creamy soups on occasion.

How do you make cream of mushroom soup?

A homemade cream of mushroom soup may be prepared in a variety of ways. The traditional procedure begins with the preparation of a roux (flour and butter cooked together), followed by the addition of milk, water, vegetable stock, or mushroom stock. Mushrooms that have been sautéed or cooked are added afterwards. Finally, a dollop of cream is added.

I stick to the recipe’s basic instructions. The only modification I make from the basic procedure is that instead of adding the cooked mushrooms afterwards, I sauté them first, then add the flour, milk, and finish the soup in one pot. Isn’t it simple and quick? 

This mushroom cream soup is delicious.

  • A recipe for a one-pot soup.
  • Making homemade cream of mushroom soup is simple and fast.
  • In the end, you’ll have a creamy, smooth soup that’s perfect for any season.
  • Because no chicken stock is used in this dish, it is completely vegetarian. If you have vegetable stock on hand, you may use that instead of water.
  • Instead of all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour is used to make the roux. Both aid in thickening the soup, and you may use whichever one you want.

Is cream of mushroom soup free of gluten?

Because the roux is made using wheat flour, cream of mushroom soup is not gluten-free. However, potato starch, tapioca starch, or corn starch may be used to make a gluten-free cream of mushroom soup.

These carbohydrates thicken the soup while also giving it a creamy texture. You may simply replace any of the gluten-free flours indicated above in my cream of mushroom recipe. When utilizing tapioca and potato starch, the flavor will be somewhat different.

1. Measure out and store all of the soup’s components on hand (mise en place).
