Confession: I love mushrooms so much that it takes a lot of self control not to eat them all while I'm chopping them.
Somehow, enough mushrooms actually ended up in the soup pot for this "cream-of" soup to become Cream of Mushroom Soup. You know that saying "good things come to those that wait"? Yea. Good things come to those that wait.
See, while the mushrooms sit on the cutting board, they're foamy little bites with earthy flavors that are (IMO) extraordinarily fun to eat. But once they've been seared, seasoned, and drowned in a creamy broth, they become savory, meaty and rich.
Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup blows the canned stuff out of the water, and not just in flavor and style. It is actually truly nourishing with whole ingredients, healing broth, and no mystery additives. Besides, this homemade version comes with bacon, and you can't beat that. Walking the line between creamy and gravy, this soup sticks to your bones. Each creamy bite is infused with the flavors of fresh herbs, leeks, and mushrooms. Little bits of bacon give your something to go searching for. An empty bowl begs to be licked clean.
Who invented the canned stuff anyways? No offense, but they were totally off the mark.
This creamy tomato soup will bring a taste of the garden to every bite. If you are not a tomato soup fan, we encourage you to try this soup. The tomato flavor is mild and creamy, while the basil adds additional warm, sweet flavors that beautifully enhance this dish.
Tomato soup has been particularly nice this season, as where we are winter has been a little bit more ferocious. This recipe adds some heartiness to your standard tomato soup and we think you'll love it.
I came up with this recipe when 3/4 of my kiddos brought home the sniffles shortly after school started in September. For dinner one night, I had planned to make stir-fry with some minutes steaks that were thawed in the fridge and a head of Napa cabbage that needed to be used up ASAP, but I also wanted to keep bone broth-loading everyone. So, Steak Stir-Fry Soup it was!
Substitute/omit/add ingredients depending on which meats and veggies you enjoy in your stir-fry and how chunky you like your soup.
The smell of dill, garlic, and chicken that fills the kitchen when this soup simmers will always remind me of my Grandy Kyp. The original recipe, created by my Grandy’s Bubbe, used an entire roasting chicken for some very healing bone broth! I will gladly enjoy this soup any day of the week, but it is particularly comforting when I am not feeling my best.
