A deliciously rich and creamy mushroom soup that is easy to make in one pot! And don’t forget to serve with a warm buttered roll or rustic crusty bread for dipping.


  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1.5 lbs sliced mixed mushrooms (crimini, shiitake, oyster), sliced
  • 1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Garnish: Fresh thyme or chopped parsley


  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onions; cook, stirring occasionally until mushrooms are browned and the onions are translucent, about 8-10 minutes. Remove half of mushrooms from pot; set aside.
  2. Add garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper; cook 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add butter, stirring until melted. Add flour, stirring to coat mushrooms, about 30 seconds.
  4. Slowly add chicken broth, stirring to combine. Allow soup to simmer, about 10 minutes.
  5. Using an immersion blender, blend soup until smooth. Return reserved mushrooms to the pot.
  6. Add cream, stirring to combine. Allow soup to come to a simmer, about 5 minutes, until thickened and creamy.
  7. Serve hot garnished with fresh thyme or parsley.


  • Remove and discard the stems from shiitake mushrooms as they can be woody.
  • Use half & half cream (10% fat) to cut down on the fat, but heavy cream makes for a richer soup.
