Easy Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup | Recipe Nomad

I love this recipe because it’s simple. And it’s creamy. I don’t know if I love it more because of its simplicity or its creaminess but this is my favorite recipe for delicious Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup. My favorite part? Absolute favorite? I top my soup with extra sauteed mushrooms! This little extra steps

  1. Makes each bowl look a whole lot prettier
  2. Gives the soup an extra flavor texture

It’s those little things that make a world of difference.

By the way, the soup freezes very nicely. Just don’t add the cream before freezing- add it when you reheat the soup.

Seriously isn’t this the simplest and prettiest bowl of Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup ever?

Love the bowl as much as I do? If you’re in Shanghai, pay attention on the street for vendors who sell bowls, plates and other ceramic items. They usually have them in the same style cart that they use for selling fruit. I bought this one (and about 10 more) from a guy next to Carrefour Gubei. And don’t forget to haggle on the price! I paid 20RMB for this one- that’s less than $3! I just loved the blue lining. Unfortunately these types of vendors only have a few of each item so don’t expect to buy a whole set. But they’re perfect for food bloggers like me who only need 1 or 2. At this point I need a dedicated closet for my food blog supplies! (shhh! This food blogger has a shopping problem!)
