Simple Gourmet Mushroom Soup

No Processed Ingredients. 4 Simple Steps. 20 Minutes to Make. 

Our family has been eliminating processed foods so I have been learning to make things from scratch.  Cream of Mushroom Soup is one of those ingredients that is often used in recipes.  I no longer use the canned version so I wanted to find an alternative.  This from scratch version is so simple to make and tastes soooo much better than the canned.  We are never going back!  

*My mom is also going to try and make it with Arrow Root for a gluten free version.  I will update this and let you know how that works!  

Simple Gourmet Mushroom Soup
Serves: 4 to 5

16 oz. fresh mushrooms (sliced)
4 Tbsp. chopped yellow onion
3 minced garlic cloves
6 Tbsp. flour (or almond flour*)
4 Tbsp. butter
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cup half n half
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg

STEP 1: In a stockpot melt the butter.  Add the mushrooms, onions and garlic and cook until soft. 

STEP 2: Add the 4 Tbsp. of the flour while stirring. 

STEP 3:  Mix in the chicken broth and cook until thickened.

STEP 4:  In a separate bowl mix 2 Tbsp of flour with the half n half, salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Add this to the stockpot and stir constantly about 5 minutes.  Soup will thicken as shown. 

Pour into bowls and sprinkle with pepper or parsley then serve!  This is so simple to make and tastes gourmet.
