Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup – Keto and Low Carb

Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup - Keto and Low Carb

If you like mushrooms, you must try this!!!  I take a mix of mushrooms and make it into a luscious creamy soup.  The intense flavor from the dried mushrooms lends incredible depth of flavor in this soup!

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds of diced mushrooms, combination of white and baby bella

5 ounces shitaki mushrooms

1 ounce dried porcini & wild mushroom mix

1 cup boiling hot water

3 cups chicken stock

1 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon fresh lemon thyme (or thyme)

1 shallot, minced

1/2 cup white wine (I used Pinot Grigio)

3 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

Pinch of pepper

Preparation

Add the dried mushroom mix to a bowl and pour the hot water over the top (to reconstitute).

Add the olive oil and butter to a large pot on medium heat, then add in the mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes.  Remove the mushrooms and their juices and transfer to a bowl.

Add in the minced shallot into the pot with some olive oil and cook for another 2 minutes.

Add the white wine, reconstituted dried mushrooms and the wonderful juices they produced to the pot.  Add the sautéed mushrooms back in along with the most of the lemon thyme.

Add in the chicken stock and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add in the heavy cream and cook another 2 minutes.

Scoop out a few mushrooms (for garnish) and set aside.

Using an immersion blender, puree most of the soup, leaving some chunks of mushrooms.  This should thicken the soup nicely, but won’t leave it too thick or too thin.

Serve with a few of the mushrooms pieces and a sprinkling of the reserved lemon thyme.

Can you please share your source for the dried mushrooms? Porcinis can be a little musty/earthy if you don’t get a good supplier, which is why I ask. Thanks.

Just wondering if you have tried freezing this? I am looking for work lunch ideas.
