By now I must stop yapping about my love for mushrooms. Its a known fact and needs no more proof. I have 15 recipes of Mushroom on my blog already what else needs to be said. If you give me just mushrooms, I can happily spend my entire life eating Mushrooms 🙂 If I hadn’t included this classic recipe of Cream of Mushroom Recipe this collective would have been totally incomplete.  This time I promised my self to take pictures before all of it is devoured.  This recipe doesn’t use any flour to thicken the soup. But if you like you can add 1 tablespoon All purpose flour to it. This soup is a haven for all mushroom Lovers. I often team it up with my fresh homemade Whole Wheat bread.

Its very easy to put together. Even bachelors can make this and doesn’t require much time and effort. The quantity of cream can always be adjusted and the soup can be made healthier as per your need.  If you are looking for other soup recipes you can find the links below.

Directions:
1. Wash Mushrooms for any grit and pat them dry using a kitchen towel. Chop them into thin slices and set aside. Also chop Onions and garlic.

7. Cover it once again and let it come to a boil. Remove the lid and turn the flame off. Puree the mushrooms using a hand blender or instead you can use a conventional blender till everything becomes smooth.
