Mushroom soup with Italian herbs

Herby mushroom soup

This mushroom soup is creamy, has a lot of fresh herbs and makes for a good healthy lunch. Whenever I do not know what to make for lunchtime this mushroom soup is always a winner. It is made with mushrooms some milk and flour and some Italian herbs that go really well with mushrooms.Β  So this soup make taste creamy it is made without any added cream.

Italian herbs in the kitchen

In my kitchen, I always have some fresh herbs in jars. In the summer they live outside and in the winter they get a place on one of my shelves in the kitchen. All my favourite Italian herbs are used in this soup, but of course, you can use the herbs you like best. In this recipe, I used rosemary, thyme, oregano and basil. If you don’t have any fresh herbs you can use some dried Italian herb mixture.

Creamy soup without cream

The creamy base of this soup is originally made with a roux. But I found it is easierΒ and healthier to make this soup by just adding a mixture of milk and flour to the baked mushrooms. Mix flour and milk in a bowl together and whiskΒ till you don’t have any lumps. This mixture can be added to the soup. When the mixture starts to cook it will thicken the soup. You can also use this technique for making any other kind of creamy soups and sauces.
