Homemade Mushroom Soup by Binks

From start to finish, this soup took less than 30 minutes. This recipe serves 6-8 people.


4 tablespoons butter

1 pound sliced or diced mushrooms (any variety)

1 large onion diced

Flour or corn starch to thicken

28 ounces chicken broth

1 cup half and half

1 cup milk

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 teaspoon paprika (optional)

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)


Heat butter in a large soup pot. Add onions and saute for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms. Simmer for 5 minutes or until onions are soft.

Add chicken broth and flour or corn starch 1 tablespoon at a time to desired thickness as you bring pot to boil.

Add half and half and milk, salt and pepper, red pepper and paprika and simmer for 15 minutes stirring regularly.


I’m a fan of Rachel Ray cookware. This pot is similar to mine which I love and matching oven mitts.
