Grilled Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

This is a good, simple recipe for cream of mushroom soup and the mushrooms are grilled before being added to the soup to make them extra juicy and give them a smoky flavor, which goes nicely with their earthiness. You might be familiar with marinated grilled vegetable recipe ideas or easy grilled vegetable recipes and, if so, you have probably grilled mushrooms before. If not, it is very easy and using skewers is the simplest way to grill them.

If you use two skewers instead of one, this stops the skewer from spinning on the grill. Shallots also complement the mushroom flavor. You can use green onions instead of the shallots if you want to. The cornstarch thickens this soup up. The cream makes it slightly thicker too but the cornstarch makes it extra thick and delicious. This is a really fresh flavored soup and it is much nicer than any canned mushroom soup you could buy. The same goes for most homemade soup recipes. It is always better to make your own.

The lemon juice adds a nice citrus flavor to the creamy mushroom soup recipe and the cream adds a luxurious texture. Lots of recipes with mushroom soup contain lemon juice because it goes well and this recipe does too. If you enjoy cream of mushroom soup recipes, you will love this soup, especially the fact that it is made with grilled mushrooms for maximum flavor. This is a rich and flavorful soup, which is perfect served in small portions as an appetizer or slightly bigger ones as a lunch.
