White Button Mushroom Soup

I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

Whenever I have leftover white button mushrooms, this is my go-to soup recipe! You can downsize the recipe and make even just a small cup of it with a just few leftover mushrooms. There is no heavy cream added to this soup, making it a healthy alternative to most of the creamy mushroom soups out there. With a few simple ingredients that include onion, garlic, and beef broth, this recipe is super easy to make. I like to add a little thyme for a nice, herby flavor.

The trick to getting a nice texture is to blend half of the soup in your Magic Bullet, then combine it with the other half of the soup and reheating in the pot. This thickens the soup and creates the perfect texture – not too thick, and not too runny.

When prepping your mushrooms, don’t wash them with water or they will get soggy. You can use a paper towel or vegetable brush to clean off any pieces of dirt on them before chopping them for use in your soup.
