Recipe Notes

Tips for Mushroom Soup Recipe

  1. Use fresh, firm and plumpy mushrooms for a good taste. Don't use slimy, spotted ones else the soup smells stale.
  2. I used button mushrooms, you can substitute it with canned or half quantity of Cremini mushrooms too.
  3. Never soak the mushrooms in water for cleaning, else it becomes more soggy . Just clean it in running water.
  4. After slicing, ensure to pat dry the mushrooms thoroughly with a kitchen cloth.
  5. For more creamier version, half of the quantity of the mushrooms can be pureed and then added to the soup.
  6.  For a healthy version, All Purpose Flour/Maida can be replaced with wheat flour. But ensure to saute the flour well till the raw smell leaves.
  7. For a gluten free Mushroom Soup Recipe, Potato starch, corn flour or tapioca flour can be used for thickening.
  8. Milk can be substituted with vegetable stock or chicken stock too.
  9. Don't skip to add nutmeg powder as it lends a nice aroma to the Cream of Mushroom Soup.
  10. I used coriander for garnishing, you can use other herbs like parsley, thyme, basil, oregana too.
  11. Always switch off the flame and then add fresh cream, else there is a chance of curdling.
  12. This soup stays good for 2 days under refrigeration but add fresh cream just before serving.
