This is a very quick and easy mushroom soup. Most ingredients are probably something you already have in the fridge and if you prepare the vegetables beforehand this soup can be ready as soon as the potatoes are done (20 min).
This recipe was adopted from my mother in law who originally gave me the general idea (I just added sour cream, carrots and the mushroom bullion cube to her recipe, which by the way if you even make this without the three ingredients it will still be as good). Anytime I need to make a mushroom soup this is the recipe I reach for. Try it!
Ingredients for Mushroom Soup:
How To make Mushroom Soup:
- Dice onion, chop the carrots and potatoes.
- Sauté the onion and carrots in a lightly greased non-stick skillet over medium high heat until tender; add the mushrooms and continue to sauté until mushrooms shrink in size.
3. Add the mushroom bullion cube to the mushroom sauté (I picked mine up at the local Polish deli, it helps intensify the mushroom flavor.)
4. Add the cream cheese and sour cream to the mushroom sauté and stir until bubbly and smooth. Add the heavy cream and continue to simmer.
5. Meanwhile fill a large pot with water about half way full (a little less than half since water will rise after you add the veggies and potatoes) and bring to a boil. Once water has boiled add potatoes and chicken bullion cubes.
6. Then add the sautéed mushroom mixture to the potatoes and continue boiling until potatoes are tender (20-25min).
7. Turn off stove and add dill.
