Mushroom Soup Ingredients

What are the Mushroom Soup Ingredients?

This recipe needs just handful of ingredients.

Button Mushrooms – Although I have used button mushrooms for this recipe but I have made this soup with cremini mushrooms and baby bella mushrooms. You can use a mix of mushrooms also for this recipe.

Onions – Make sure to use either white or yellow onions for this recipe.

Garlic – Use fresh plump garlic. You can use more or less quantity of garlic from mentioned in the recipe card.

Parsley – It is optional to use. Adds the pretty green color to the ash color of the soup. Also it adds the delicate subtle flavor.

Butter – Butter adds so much more flavor to the soup. But you can use Olive Oil as well.

Rosemary Leaves – Although I have used dry rosemary leaves for the recipe, you can use fresh sprig of rosemary as well.

Corn Starch – It is used in the recipe as a thickening agent. You can use All purpose flour in case you do n0t have corn starch.

Salt & Black Pepper

Milk – Although I have used 2% milk in the recipe, but you can use whole milk or cream as well in the recipe. To make it vegan, use plant based milk.

Vegetable Broth – Vegetable broth adds to the flavor and depth of the soup. You can use low sodium or no sodium broth. In case you do not have broth, you can use plain water.

How to make Mushroom Soup in Instant Pot?

It is a very simple and easy recipe to make. And the result is this amazing, delicious and elegant soup that is perfect as a winter soup. Watch the small instructional video attached for clarity.

Prep the Vegetables for Mushroom Soup Recipe

Peel and wash Onions and Garlic in a Kitchen Colander. Chop these roughly and set aside. 

Now wash the button mushrooms in a Kitchen Colander under running water. Wash them thoroughly. Then take a paper kitchen towel and wipe them clean thoroughly. Make sure that there is no dirt on the mushrooms. Read this article that I wrote sometime ago about how to clean the mushrooms. Now chop these mushrooms roughly and set aside.

Make Corn Starch Slurry

Make Corn Starch slurry by mixing Corn Starch with milk in a bowl. Use a Small Whisk or a fork to mix it. Make sure that there are no lumps left in the mix. Set aside.

To make it vegan, use plant based milk that is un-sweetened and un-flavored.

      1. I’m eating the soup right now. It’s a good base, and for that, I thank this site. I wouldn’t have made this without the email about it, which got me interested in trying it. A few things I’d change next time. 1. More rosemary. I used our own dried rosemary, so I know it’s strong, yet 1/2 tsp just isn’t enough. 2. I added kale to this at the end because I still have a bunch from when I made the wild rice and vegetable soup a few days ago. It adds texture and greens, but not sure I’ll do that again. It was an experiment. 3. Not sure I’d blend it with the immersion blender again, at least not as much. It makes the soup less hearty, I think. 4. I used baby bella mushrooms. I think next time I’d like to try a combination of mushrooms to add more depth. 5. As with the wild rice vegetable soup recipe, something was in the narrative, but not in the ingredients list. Please put your options in the ingredients list as options, so that when I’m doing prep, I can make sure and have it if I want to add it. This time, it was parsley and fried mushrooms for garnish. 6. This doesn’t feed 4, at least, not as a meal, which is what I intended. It would barely feed 2 adults, I think. Next time, I’ll double the recipe.
        I appreciate this recipe as a starting point, and it’s good to try it and then vary it up, I think, based on one’s individual tastes. As it is, it’s tasty. For my own tastes, I will make the above changes.
