  • 4 tablespoon butter 57 gram
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch or mroe for extra thickness
  • 8 ounces white button mushrooms sliced 220g
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 small yellow onion diced (about ½ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic clove minced
  • ½ cup milk
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter until foaming. Add onion and saute until it starts to become translucent. Add in garlic, and saute for 1 an additional 1 minute. Add mushrooms and cook (for 5-6 minutes ) until they have released most of their liquid. Sift the cornstarch into the onion mushroom mixture and stir to coat.
  • Slowly pour in chicken broth, and milk. Simmer on low heat until thickened. This will happen very fast.
  • Season this simple soup to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Use this soup as a substitution to any condensed soup canned version. The recipe yields total of 2 and ¼ cup equal to almost 2 10.5 oz canned Campbell's cream of mushroom soup.



  • As with other types of homemade cream of soups, continuously whisk the soup mixture over low heat to achieve a smooth flavor and consistency.
  • Add the cooked and cooled cream of mushroom to a food processor for a minute or two if you want a completely smooth texture.
  • How to store. Make a double batch of this soup and keep refrigerated in a mason jar or similar for up to a week (freeze for up to 4 months). The mixture will separate but after reheating and thoroughly whisking will return to the initial texture. Add a little milk if needed along the way.
