Creamy Mushroom Soup is a lovely comfort food and a really diverse dish. You can eat it during lunch, together with some toast, or as a starter at dinner. This is a basic recipe and I encourage you to adjust this recipe to your taste! Tom and I love spicy food so I added a Madame Jeanette to spice things up.

Often it is so easy to buy some pre-made soup in the grocery store, unfortunately this is often with ingredients you don’t actually want to eat. For instance: rapeseed oil, skinny-milk powder, colorants and stabilizers.

I hope you enjoy this homemade creamy mushroom soup as much as we do. Please leave a comment below or share this recipe if you like it!
