Ingredients for easy mushroom soup:
- 8 cups chicken or vegetable broth;
- 500 grams thinly sliced mushrooms;
- 4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and diced;
- 1 large onion diced;
- 1 large carrot grated;
- several cloves of garlic minced;
- minced dill (parsley);
- diced scallion;
- olive oil;
- Salt, pepper to taste;
- Sour cream to serve.
How to Make Mushroom Clear Soup:
- Bring 8 cups of vegetable or chicken broth to a light boil and add peeled, diced potatoes. After broth reboils, let potatoes cook until they are tender (it can take you up to 10 minutes).
- While potatoes are on the stove cooking, you will sauté vegetables. Heat skillet over medium/heat with oil and then add diced onion and grated carrot. Let them cook for about 5 minutes, until they become golden.
- Add mushrooms to the skillet with veggies.
- Let them sauté until they are little softened (it will take you the same 5 minutes or so). The liquid from mushrooms should evaporate.
- When you see that potatoes are almost ready, add sautéed veggies and let them simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Add pepper and salt to taste. Stir in minced garlic and dill or parsley (great if you have both). Do not forget diced scallion! It will add vibrant color. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for a minute or two. Check potatoes! If they are done, close the pot and remove your soup from the heat.
- Before serving, sprinkle with fresh dill. You can also add sour cream (it will help to emphasize all the flavors).
