I shared this recipe with a friend today! It is my favorite morel mushroom soup! So delicious!
I got a huge container of dried mushrooms. What to do? I’ve made this recipe twice. Added leftover turkey once. Easy to make, delicious.
This is an excellent recipe. Easy and very flavorful. Yum. Thanks.
Very impressed with this recipe
I’ve made this recipe quite a few times and it is amazing! I do it in my instant pot pressure cooker instead of on the stove, but it is an easy modification (look up instant pot mushroom soup to see an example). I usually use shiitake and oysters for the “wild” mushrooms, as that is what I can find. Today I will make it with Morels, Shiitake, Oysters, Black trumpets for the wild side. I usually add a bit more (maybe 30% more) mushrooms than this calls for as I like my soup a bit thicker. I also add a bit of black truffle oil to the mix as it really adds that je ne se qois.
This made a lovely soup. A little sweet for me as i like my soups really savory. I added a hint of seasoning salt, oregano, and crushed red chilli flakes and a little more garlic and thyme. It was delicious! Can’t wait to try it over some nice homemade porkchops. Yum! Thank you for this scrumptious recipe. :)
I’m so glad you liked it Vanessa!
Sounds amazing. How does it taste if made ahead and reheated before serving?
Hello Aukse, I can’t recall at the moment because it has been a while since I made it last, but it should be fine.
Hi Elise. I stay I Bangalore, India ans all I can get are dried oyster and shiitake mushrooms. Will these do?
I think so. The dried shiitakes should be especially good. I haven’t tried them in a cream-based soup though. ~Elise
How detrimental would it be to the recipe if I used all dried porcini mushrooms? I will also add fresh oyster mushrooms and regular white mushrooms, but I only found dried porcini in the store.
I’m sure it will be delicious. ~Elise
You can alternatively soak the porcini in the chicken broth directly and strain it later. The broth will have a mushroom flavor, so spend less time simmering it down in the end.
Ahhh…MORELS…The Best mushroom, Anymone can learn to identify these delicious treats. I recommend taking a mushroom hunter into the woods with you the first few times, after that it should be no problem. Furthermore, I won the NATIONAL MOREL HUNTING CHAMPIONSHIP held in Boyne City,MI. In 1999 I was crowned the National Morel Hunting Champion. Anyone can learn to HUNT these treats! I said “hunting” because you don’t just wander into the woods and find them. Although, I’ve found them in the most unsual places.
You are awesome Charles. I worked a project in Petoskey a few years ago and found myself at the Morel festival in Boyne City. I went on a morel hunt and found 6 or 7. Not many but pretty good for a beginner. I talked my mom and dad into driving up to see the beautiful place and asked them to stop and bring me some dried morels. Making an excellent cream of mushroom soup as we speak.
