How to Make Mushroom Soup Without Cream?
To make mushroom soup without cream, follow the following procedure:
1. Choosing the mushrooms
You can use many different blends of mushroom when making cream of mushroom soup, but cremini, fresh brown, mini portobello, and button are the most popular choices.
2. Sautéing Process
Once you have selected your mushrooms, you must slice and sauté them in a mixture of extra virgin olive oil and butter for about 10 minutes over medium-high heat until the mushrooms are light brown and most of their water has been released. Set a cup of these cooked mushrooms aside for adding at the end, and add minced shallots and garlic to the pot, sautéing at medium heat for one minute.
Add salt, dried tarragon, and chicken, beef, or vegetable stock to the pot of sautéed mushrooms, shallots, and garlic. Increase the heat back to medium-high and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes before removing from the stove.
Add the chunky soup to a standing blender in batches, or use an immersion or hand blender. Blend until the soup is completely chunk-free and smooth.
5. Add Milk
Transfer the puréed soup back to the original pot and whisk in coconut milk instead of cream before adding black pepper and the reserved mushrooms to this creamless mushroom soup. To make mushroom soup with milk, use regular milk (full fat or 2%) in place of cream.
