This Homemade Mushroom Soup is so exceptional you’ll never want to eat canned again.
On a recent trip to the grocery store I came across an amazing variety pack of mushrooms. Tucked away in my binder full of recipes I had saved this delicious looking recipe for Mushroom soup from Season with Spice. These mushrooms were perfect to give this recipe a try. The recipe exceeded my expectations and is now, by far, my favorite mushroom soup recipe. A hint of  nutmeg adds incredible, but subtle flavor. This recipe serves 2 so be sure to double or more, for second helpings or to feed the family.homemade mushroom soup IMG_7289

    I am new to your web page. I love homemade soup and mushrooms. Also, fresh herbs are best in most recipes. It cuts down on the sodium intake and adds more flavor. I will try the recipe with the thyme. Thank you for sharing.

    Is this soup freezable?? I am looking for soups I can freeze, but the cream and mushrooms concern me. Do you have experience with freezing this soup or either ingredient?

      Elizabeth, I have never froze this soup, but I agree I don’t think cream soups freeze very well, and I think the mushrooms would get an undesirable texture. Have you tried my Italian Turkey Burger Soup, it freezes very well.
