6-Ingredient Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe Puts Canned Soup to Shame

Put that can opener back in the drawer – but grab the immersion blender. This silky smooth homemade cream of mushroom soup recipe is full of mushroom flavor and ready in under 30 minutes.

The six ingredients are ones you probably already have in your kitchen: butter, mushrooms, onion, flour, chicken broth and half and half or whipping cream. Use half and half for a lighter soup. Using cream in this soup recipe will make the finished product creamier. Your choice! You could even use nut milk if you don't drink or cook with cow's milk. Want to go gluten-free? Use gluten-free flour. 

Want even more mushrooms? Roast or sauté additional mushrooms to use as a garnish. This easy six-ingredient cream of mushroom soup recipe can be used in place of canned cream of mushroom soup in recipes.
