Cream of soups will be more filling and can be had with some light dinner, Clear soups acts as an appetizer. In this cream of soups list this is one of our favourite soups which I often make at home. So easy to make and tastes so yummy and creamy too. Consuming soup everyday is surely healthy and fresh. This tastes great for all mushroom lovers. And I have used mini
portabello mushrooms. You can use any kind of mushrooms according to ur choice. Here goes the recipe...

Ingredients :

Mushroom - 1 cup chopped finely
White onion - 1 tbsp finely chopped
Garlic grated - 1 small pod
All purpose flour - 2 tbsp
Milk - 1 cup
Water - needed for diluting according to our consistency (can use vegetable stock or chicken stock if you have)
Butter - 1 tbsp
Salt and pepper as required

Method :

1. Melt the butter in the frying pan. Add the garlic and onion slightly.
2. Then add the mushroom it oozes out water.
3. Saute until all the water is absorbed and dried.
4. Now to this sprinkle the all purpose flour and fry until it changes very slight brown(not too much).
5. Then add milk, water or stock and mix well. Adjust the liquids according to your required consistency. It boils and thickens.
6. Add salt and pepper serve with some soup sticks, Garlic croutons or anyother thing. Here I have served with Herb and garlic foccacia sticks.


1. For variation you can substitute chicken, vegetables, or Broccoli (chopped to very small florets) in place of mushroom.
2. For making croutons if you have any old bread just cut into desired shape add Italian herbs and garlic powder, salt. Just sprinkle olive oil or butter it. Make it crispy in the oven. This can be stored and used when you make soups.
