Cream of Wild Mushroom Soup

Jordan Tony
There are few soups that are heartier than cream of mushroom and when you incorporate flavor-packed wild mushrooms like morels and oysters you get an almost perfect comfort food. The mushrooms in this recipe are cooked and then blended so it’s a great way to use up the less beautiful specimens and stems from your mushroom harvest. You can swap out the morel and oyster mushrooms for any other mushroom and make a similarly delicious soup, but we find that the combination described below yields a nice balance of mild mushroom earthiness and that unique nutty-sweetness that you can only get from morels.

Servings 4 people


  • 4 Cups Oyster Mushrooms Chopped
  • 8-10 Morel Mushrooms
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion Chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Butter or Ghee
  • 1 Tbsp High-Heat Oil
  • 3-4 Cups Mushroom Stock
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • Thyme


  • Heat the butter in a medium stockpot and add the chopped onions and a sprig of thyme. Cook until the onions become translucent.
  • Add the chopped oyster mushrooms to the pot and cook while stirring until they begin to brown.
  • As soon as the mushrooms begin to brown, add the mushroom stock and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and stir in your heavy cream.
  • Once the cream is well incorporated pour all of the contents of the pot into a blender and blend until smooth. Add additional mushroom stock to thin out if the texture is too thick.
  • Return the blended soup back to the pot and simmer it on low.
  • Dice the morel mushrooms into small pieces (think bacon bits). Set a few aside to slice in half for a garnish if you want.
  • Heat a skillet to medium high with the high-heat oil and pour in the diced morels. Cook until they are browned and crispy.
  • Stir the crispy morels into the soup and serve with a crusty Italian bread.
