hungarian mushroom soup in a dutch oven with parsley

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Hungarian Mushroom Soup is made with two types of mushrooms, as well as two types of cream. It’s rich, velvety, and a soup you’ll never forget.

What’s Special About This Soup?

I adore Hungarian Mushroom Soup. My friend, Jeanne, made it for me one day when I was under the weather and I got better right way.

While it may seem like a lengthy recipe, it comes together quickly after collecting the ingredients. Hungarian Mushroom Soup is worth the love and care you put into it, because it will probably cure whatever ails you. If not, it will definitely help.

Besides all that, it’s addictively delicious. If you’re a mushroom lover, it will be your new favorite soup. There’s just something about those tasty little morsels in a rich, creamy sauce that makes me swoon.

How To Make It

Get out your pretty dutch oven (ad) and melt some butter while you chop the onions and grate the carrot. Sauté them for a few minutes, then add garlic, soy sauce and mushrooms. Sauté a little longer, then add beef or vegetable broth and bring to a boil.

At this point, you can put your feet up while the soup simmers.

Take the soup off the heat, then whisk in a mixture of flour, paprika, (ad) dill weed, pepper, and half & half. Slowly bring soup up to medium heat without allowing it to boil. Take off the heat again and add the final ingredients of sour cream, lemon juice, and parsley.

Give it a stir and serve in big bowls alongside a mixed green salad and crusty bread. Lord, have mercy! I’m telling ya…this soup will knock your socks off.

    Debi, this could easily be adapted for a keto friendly soup. Instead of flour do you know if xanthan gum would work with almond or coconut four?

    • That’s a great question, Tina. I’m not sure about the rules for Keto eating plans, so I’m counting on you to find out if those items would be good substitutions. Please post your findings here because I”m sure others would want to know!

  2. I can’t believe I found a recipe for this soup! I’ve been looking for it forever. Now I can finally make it for my family. Thanks Debi.
