Savory, Satisfying, Creamy Mushroom Soup

There's a certain kind of magic in a bowl of creamy mushroom soup, and it goes beyond just a warm and comforting meal. It's a culinary embrace, a journey into earthy flavors and velvety textures that soothe the soul and ignite the senses. This savory delight is more than a mere soup; it's a symphony of tastes and aromas that transform a simple dish into an unforgettable experience.

At first glance, creamy mushroom soup might seem straightforward, but its creation is a delicate dance of flavors and techniques. The key lies in the mushrooms themselves - a medley of earthy varieties like cremini, shiitake, and portobello. These mushrooms, sautéed to perfection, release their rich, deep flavors into the soup, creating a foundation that's both robust and nuanced. For a flavorful, umami-rich broth that really lets mushrooms shine, start with a packet of dried porcini mushrooms. First, you’ll soak the dried mushrooms in a bowl of boiling water, which rehydrates and softens them and also transforms the water into a deep, earthy broth, which will eventually get stirred into the simmering vegetable broth.

Dried mushrooms can contain some dirt and grit, so when straining the mushroom broth, I recommend lining your strainer with cheesecloth to help remove any unwanted debris.


1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms

1 1/2 cups boiling water

1 medium yellow onion

2 cloves garlic

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 pound sliced cremini mushrooms

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespons all-purpose flour

4 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth (32 ounces)

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons dried thyme

2 bay leaves

1/2 cup heavy cream
