To begin with, some interpretations of culinary terms:

  • Puréeing is the process of turning certain ingredients or the whole dish into purée.
  • Caramelization is the darkening of sugar, a process widely used in cooking for its final sweet nutty flavor and brown color. But in general, it is a process of combining certain ingredients. It can be done with sugar, with beer, with honey, with wine, etc.
  • Sautéing is a cooking technique that consists of lightly frying the product with or without fat before subsequent heat treatment with periodic stirring.

This recipe uses fresh wild mushrooms, but you can also use frozen ones. Generally, mushrooms tolerate freezing very well, and it does not impact the taste of the finished dish. This gives you the opportunity to treat yourself to a delicious mushroom cream soup at any time of the year, not only during the summer.

👩‍🍳 Forest mushrooms, so be careful and don’t use mushrooms you’re not sure about.

Although the amount of mushrooms can be reduced, you will need to add potatoes and carrots. The result will change because the soup will no longer be a cream soup, although some people may prefer it more.

A mixture of different forest mushrooms was used to prepare the purée soup: porcini mushrooms, boletus mushrooms, shiitake, and chanterelles. If there are not enough wild mushrooms, feel free to use cream champignons and oyster mushrooms. They can be purchased in the supermarket all year round.

The color of your cream soup will be affected by the composition of mushrooms. More white ones – lighter, Boletus mushrooms – darker.

How to make cream of mushroom soup

First, the mushrooms should be sorted, cleaned and washed, put in a pot, pour broth and cook on low heat for at least 30 minutes.

After the mushrooms are cooked, you need to take out and set aside a handful of mushrooms. If you can, choose small and beautiful pieces. These mushrooms will be added to the purée soup later.

When everything has boiled, you need to pour the entire contents of the pan into a blender and beat to a smooth purée. (You can also use an immersion blender.) Don’t worry that the resulting purée is very dark, cream will be added to it and the soup will lighten up a lot.

👩‍🍳 It is best to take high-fat cream (double cream) – 33%. Before adding it to the purée, heat it in a separate ladle, but do not boil it. Due to its fat content, the cream will not curdle, like, for example, sour cream or low-fat cream.
