Creamy mushroom soup

Warm, comforting, and bursting with earthy flavours, creamy mushroom soup is a classic favourite that’s perfect for a cozy meal
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • 400g fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 750ml vegetable stock
  • 250ml heavy cream
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the croutons:
    • 2 slices of white bread, large cubed
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon rosemary
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium heat and add the butter and olive oil. Once the butter has melted, add the chopped onions and garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the onions are soft and translucent.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pot and cook for an additional 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have released their moisture and become tender.
  3. Pour in the vegetable stock and add the fresh thyme sprigs. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.
  4. Remove the thyme sprigs from the soup and discard them. Use an immersion blender or a regular blender to puree the soup until it’s smooth and creamy.
  5. Return the pureed soup to the pot and stir in the heavy cream. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the soup to heat through. Season with salt and cracked black pepper to taste.
  6. While the soup is simmering, prepare the croutons. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Toss the cubed bread with olive oil, garlic powder, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Spread them evenly on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Serve the creamy mushroom soup hot, garnished with a handful of homemade croutons. Enjoy the delightful combination of creamy soup and crunchy croutons!
