There’s nothing better than a creamy mushroom soup once the weather starts getting cooler. If mushroom isn’t your thing, I also have a wonderful Cream of Asparagus Soup, my Dad’s Famous Cauliflower Soup and a creamy Carrot Ginger Soup.

I first posted this recipe December 2010, back when I was still working a full time job and running home to cook and take photos. Most of those photos are pretty bad, so I am slowly re-shooting them. The photo just didn’t do this soup justice – it’s so flavorful and light at the same time, even my teen who could care less about eating “light” often requests this.

And, it’s so simple to make, the shitake mushrooms give this soup incredible flavor, I wouldn’t substitute them. If you are watching your sodium, you can certainly use less bouillon or replace it with chicken broth.

Enjoy!

  1. Fantastic!!! My husband loves mushroom soup and I rarely make it because I have never found a healthy one. This is perfect, we had it with garlic bread for lunch and he said he wants it everyday until he is tired of it, which maybe would be in a month!! So creamy and rich, just perfect. Thank you!

  2. Delicious! A definite keeper. 
    I did sauté a shallot with the mushrooms into the butter with a little garlic powder and at the end splashed into a bit of evaporated milk. Great flavor for just a few calories!

  3. This was delicious! I used less broth so it would be nice and thick and added a sprinkle of garlic and onion powder. So awesome, I loaded my bowl up with crackers and I can’t wait to make it again.

  4. I stirred in 175 grams of natural yogurt after immersion blending. So good! The soup got rave reviews from my husband too. I will definitely make this again. I am also considering cutting the amount of broth in half to use it as a pasta sauce.

    Absolutely delicious. I had saved some mushroom broth from my stuffed mushrooms and used that in place of a cup of water and I believe that added to the robust mushroom flavor. Additionally, I used better than bouillon
    vegetable broth in lieu of chicken broth. Will make this recipe again for sure. 

  6. This is a delicious soup, do you have the points updated for green? P.S I cook your recipes 90% of the time! Thanks for all you do🤗

  7. It’s a pretty tasty soup, but it isn’t at all creamy. Flour does not make a broth/water based soup creamy.

  8. Delish! I used all Baby Bellas (i had a lot I needed to cook), Coconut Flour and Better Than Bouillon Roasted Garlic . I added a small onion and 1/2 tsp dried thyme. Next time I’ll blend the celery and onion a little finer than I did but definitely a keeper.

  9. Hi sorry baby Bella is that the same as baby belle cheeses? Also when do they get added to the recipe as can’t see it in the instructions. Thanks

    1. Hi Emily! Baby bellas are a type of mushroom, and they would get added in step 2. I hope you enjoy it!

  10. This soup was incredible! I used chicken broth instead of the water (no buillon), added some onion, a few cloves of garlic, some carrots, chopped celery, 1/2 tsp. thyme. Boiled it all with shrooms before blending. Added a little cream cheese at end, but that wasn’t necessary, it’s creamy as is. No salt was necessary. So delicious and rich-tasting. Hard to believe it’s low fat/low carb. Thanks for the recipe! (We used wild oyster mushrooms and a few shitake)

  11. Loved this soup – it was quick and easy to make. I didn’t have celery either and instead of water used some chicken stock. I added the Greek yogurt like other reviews – it made the soup creamier and added that tart flavor. I also added salt and pepper. Will definitely make again.

    absolutely delicious!
    i made some substitutions as i didn’t have all the ingredients…no shitake mushrooms and just lots of baby bella and i didn’t have celery…still amazing! my husband like creamier soups so i put a dollop of 0% fat greek yogurt and he loved it too. Highly recommend trying this!

    I really love this recipe. It’s easy. I use my emulsifier rather than a blender. 
    Play with different mushrooms 

  14. This will be a new staple; fabulous, rich, low calorie, and easy. I only had beef bouillon paste and added onion, also fresh thyme sprigs. Tastes like France!
