A look at the ingredients for a mushroom soup recipe

Mushrooms: I have used the white button mushrooms for this mushroom soup recipe. In my post for mushroom curry I have explained the process of cleaning and cutting the mushrooms.

Butter: I have used butter to prepare the mushroom soup. You can also use olive oil.

Flour: Refined flour has been used to give body to the soup. You can try the recipe with whole wheat flour.

Milk, water, and cream: I have used a combination of milk and water. Instead, you can use only milk or only water. If you can, use vegetable stock instead of water. In this soup recipe, I had prepared and used vegetable stock. It adds so much to the soups. Heavy cream has been added to justify it being cream of mushroom soup.

Seasoning and flavoring: Salt and white pepper had been used as the seasoning agents. Garlic adds amazing flavor to the soup. You can use herbs such as thyme, oregano, cilantro, etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
