Cream of Chanterelle Soup

There is just something about fresh chanterelles that I can’t get enough of. These little beauties are in season right now, so go to your local market and get them while they are around! They are great in so many dishes. I got some a while back that didn’t go into anything immediately, so I decided to turn them into a homemade condensed cream of mushroom soup.

If you would rather skip the canned nonsense and find a great way to use up all of those in-season Chanterelles. This soup is homemade, easy to make, and is a great substitution for the canned stuff with all of the ingredients that you can’t pronounce.

This soup is super easy. And I had it sitting in my fridge for a few days before it turned into beef stroganoff.

How to make homeade cream of mushroom soup

Slice up your mushrooms and saute them in the butter for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the mushrooms with the flour, and stir to combine.

Once it is combined, add in the vegetable stock, cream, and seasonings. Stir, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened.

That’s it! Eat it as is, or put it away to use in place of that canned cream-of-mushroom that you might use otherwise.

You could do this with any old mushrooms, but for real. Try the chanterelles. They are so worth it.

I made this recipe this past Friday. Yield was exactly one quart which I refrigerated because it was mid morning when I made it. It does come out with a consistency comparable to canned mushroom soup. I made a bowl for myself this evening mixing one cup of the recipe soup with one cup of whole milk in a small saucepan and bringing it almost to a boil . Excellent! Definitely a keeper for me. I picked a few more pounds of chanterelles this morning and will be making another batch or two of this recipe tomorrow. All I have to do now is figure out how to save it long term. Great recipe!

Thanks, Mick! It is one of my favorites too. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I haven't tried freezing it because of the cream, but if I did I'd omit the cream first and save that to add in after it thaws.
