Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Add a swirl of whipping cream (heavy cream) to each bowl.
  • Cooking mushrooms this way by chopping them finely and simmering them is great for those who don't like the 'mushroom feel' in their mouth, but like the flavour.
  • Vegetarian? Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
  • Use a good quality chicken stock or, if you go vegetarian, use a vegetable stock. Don't have that available, then use water and bouillon cubes. Works great as well.

Looking for a cream of mushroom soup that's even quicker and easier?

Check out this homemade mushroom soup that I learned from my Mutti. She used canned soup .... YES, CANNED CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP .... and FRESH mushrooms for this ... and it tastes fantastic!

Some Mushroom Facts

Did you know that mushrooms are a great source of B vitamins, such as riboflavin and niacin.

What a great way to include these nutrients in your soup. Ready to make this?
