Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

This article stems from when I was making my One-Pot Wonders: Holiday Leftovers! recipe, which calls for a can of cream of mushroom soup. I made my own cream of mushroom soup recipe because I wanted a healthier alternative. It was so easy and fun to make that I would like to share it with you!

Cream of Mushroom Soup (click here to print)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons onions, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic cloves, minced
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (I used shiitake.)
2-3 tablespoons flour
1 can (14.5 ounces) fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon salt (I used Pink Himalayan.)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Directions:
1. Melt butter in a large saucepan on medium heat.
2. Add onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook until the onions are soft.
3. Blend in 2 tablespoons of flour and stir.
4. Add in the broth and heat until the soup is slightly thickened, while stirring frequently.
5. Stir the milk, additional 1 tablespoon of flour, and the seasonings together in a separate bowl. Add this mixture to the soup in the saucepan.
6. Heat to thicken, while stirring frequently (about 10 minutes).

Grab some sourdough bread for dipping and enjoy!
