Creamy Cremini Mushroom Soup

WebMD Recipe from

Total Time: 40 mins

Creamy Cremini Mushroom Soup

Reduced-fat sour cream and low-fat milk make this soup creamy without all the fat. The pudgy brown mushrooms called cremini are generally firmer and richer-tasting than common white mushrooms.


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 cups homemade chicken broth, or 2 14-ounce cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • lemon juice, to taste
  • dry sherry, to taste, optional


Step 1
Heat oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot over low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add thyme and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in mushrooms, cover pot and steam until the mushrooms exude their moisture, about 5 minutes.
Step 2
Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms. Increase heat to medium and cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes. Gradually whisk in broth, scraping up any flour that clings to the pan. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and smooth, 5 to 7 minutes.
Step 3
Combine sour cream and milk; whisk into the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Gently heat until the soup is hot but not boiling. Just before serving, stir in lemon juice and sherry (if using).
