How To Make Potato Mushroom Soup

Ingredients you’ll need

  • Russet potatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Heavy cream
  • Chicken broth
  • Butter
  • All-purpose flour

Quick tips that aren’t in the directions

  • The type of mushrooms you use are not important so choose your favorite. This is a very easy recipe to make but you will need a little experience with sautéing mushrooms.
  • Using a potato masher or immersion blender you can make the soup a bit creamier. I am more of a fan of the masher because you can mash up a portion but still have some chunks of potato in there for texture. Plus with the blender, unless you plan to remove every mushroom they will get blended as well and they bring their own texture as well.
  • Which broth you choose to use is not important. But, I’ve seen recipes using white wine and over the years I have tried it in potato soup and the cost for the wine isn’t worth it. There wasn’t a noticeable difference in flavor, yet I felt a little more fancy for paying the extra cost.

Making the potato mushroom soup recipe

  1. First, prep all of the ingredients. Once you start cooking the recipe will move too quickly to prep during the cook.
  2. In a pot on medium high heat, add the mushroom into the pot without any oil. Allow the mushrooms to sweet and release all the excess water in them. Once the water has evaporated it’s noticeable and then toss in the diced onion, garlic and some cooking oil.
  3. Now, cook everything until browned and fragrant. After, toss in the butter then once the butter has melted add int he flour and cook the flour with the ingredients.
  4. Toss in the diced potatoes, then the broth and thyme.
  5. Cover the pot and allow the soup to simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked and super soft. You’ll want to over cook them slightly before moving to the next step.
  6. After the potatoes are ready, add in the heavy cream. If done correctly, the thickness of the broth will break down the smaller potatoes and make the broth even creamier.
  7. Lastly, add salt and pepper to taste then serve.
